New Jersey Shareholder And Partnership Dispute Lawyers

A major threat to a company’s financial health and well-being are shareholder and partnership conflicts.

Our attorneys’ goal is to intervene before the problem becomes too large to solve.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) And Litigation

At the NJ law firm of Aiello, Harris, Abate, we avoid trial at all costs. Litigation is costly, time-consuming, and public.

Before deciding to litigate a case, we attempt these forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) tactics:

  • Typically, the first step is attempting to resolve the conflict between the individual parties and their attorneys without involving the court system. Most lawyers try to settle before pursuing other options.
  • If initial negotiations are unsuccessful, a third party mediator might be brought in. Mediation is cost- and time-effective, and disputes can be resolved in a matter of hours or days.
  • Similar to trial, arbitration requires you to present arguments and evidence in a courtroom-type situation. However, you appear in front of an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators rather than a judge. Decisions made are legally binding.

If all ADR attempts fail, we are not afraid to take a case to trial. We believe in our superior courtroom skills and ability to secure you maximum compensation. Our attorneys believe in pursuing the most effective route for your specific situation.
