During Marc’s entire 35+ year career as general counsel for two different companies and as a principal shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, practicing in the corporate group; Marc has handled numerous matters with respect to the formation, operation and dissolution of partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations, including the resolution of disputes among and between their respective partners, members and shareholders.
Marc is able to assist business partners by helping them devise a plan to resolve their disputes, taking into account both legal and business issues. Mediators work to keep interested parties focused on working together to maximize their options. Business partners have shared goals and interests, but these are often forgotten when disputes arise and litigation begins. In mediation, disputes can be resolved with the goal of minimal damage to the overall relationship and protecting the future of the business for everyone involved. Mediation is one of the best ways to resolve partnership, shareholder and member disputes, especially if you plan to continue in a business relationship once the dispute has ended. Mediation allows business people to make their own decisions regarding the dispute with the help of a neutral, third party mediator. This allows them to craft resolutions that are not available if they pursue a resolution through litigation. They remain in control and they decide what changes will be made to the relationship and if a potential solution is right for them, rather then having a judge impose a decision on them. Courts have far less flexibility then the parties to craft a resolution that the parties can live with.
