IIn the event that a business dispute is irreconcilable, the only possible outcome may be to disentangle your business interests from those of your partners with a business dissolution.


Managed carefully, the dissolution of a business venture can produce great opportunity. Sometimes, though, that means moving aggressively to protect your interests from the designs of your former partners. Everything from the business’s intellectual property and real estate holdings to former clients and cash is up for grabs when the break-up occurs, and you should have a competent business attorney on your side to make sure you get your fair share.

  • 100% Satisfaction with Communication
         Eric helped represent me with a very large lawsuit that was brought against me. 100% satisfaction with communication. It was timely; it was appropriate; it was insightful, thoughtful. From beginning to end, it was very clear that my legal counsel, Eric Helmy was by far the better warrior, so to speak, the intellectually, strategically, and we clearly outthought the opposition from beginning to end, and I don’t think they knew what hit them. The opposition didn’t have any choice but to really retreat and drop the suit, so I was very satisfied.

  • He'll Respond to Me When I Need Him.
         …I believe my law case never would have got off the ground without Eric’s attention to what was happening to me. I’m an excavator, in the tough times that have come along, there’s been several instances where the big developers think they’re not going to pay me, and I feel like they’re trying to [take advantage of] me. I can call Eric,…and he’ll come down and go sit in a meeting with me and all these big developers are writing checks before we’re getting up and leaving. …It’s nice to know that I have him on retainer, and he’ll respond for me when I need him. That’s the personal service you’ll get with him…

  • We Left With Important Information and a Plan
         Our first meeting with Eric was very helpful. We left with important information and a plan, and now we have our own corporation! Eric was invaluable in the writing of our bylaws and in advising our business setup. He also had great insights into owning a business in the Northwest. Having him on our company’s side makes us feel ready for the legal hurdles we will face as our business grows.

  • We are Very Pleased
         …We’ve worked with Eric on two different contract matters and [have] been very, very pleased with his advice and all the support he’s provided to members of our organization…We were really, really pleased with the quality of work Eric delivered, all the due diligence he performed, the advice he gave to the members of our staff…We would certainly recommend Eric, and we would hope to work with him again.
