Peter A. Mahler, author of our sister blog New York Business Divorce, posted an excellent analysis of a recent case involving a shareholder dispute among members of an anesthesia group.

Key pieces of advice from Mahler:

  • Draft clear termination and exit provisions in shareholder and employment agreements;
  • Arbitration clauses can produce quicker results than litigation, reduce hostilities, and keep private disputes private.
