Working Through a Business Dissolution

All businesses come to the end of the road at some point. The reasons vary:

  • Business/financial failure
  • Changes in the market/competition
  • Inability of board members to agree on a course of action
  • A serious dispute or event that makes continuing impossible
  • Health concerns or death of a principal

But you cannot just walk away from a business. Unless you properly wind up the affairs of your business, you may incur personal liability for employment or other taxes or environmental matters. You may have also assumed personal liability for debts or other obligations of the business which will be triggered upon its closure. There may be other ongoing issues you will be called upon to address.

Dissolution Of Corporations, Partnerships And LLCs

Two forms of corporate dissolution allow you to sidestep these issues: voluntary dissolution and involuntary or petitioned dissolution. Involuntary dissolution requires court intervention. Both kinds are complex enough to require experienced dissolution attorneys representing you.
