The corporate counsel group at VLF can provide the experienced representation you need, whether you are:
Involved in a possible company access and control or partnership disputes
When you and your partners first organize your company, you all have the brightest future in mind. Your business will create or deliver the next great idea, product, or process. You aspire to do better than everyone else and to do better for yourselves.
It is difficult to imagine at the beginning of such as partnership that the relationships between stakeholders could deteriorate.
Shareholder and partnership disputes are among the most emotionally charged issues you can face in your organization. A “business divorce” can be every bit as contentious as a marital one.
Access to experienced counsel can keep matters from becoming uncontrollable.
Through litigation, court-ordered injunctive relief, and preventing the disclosure of sensitive information, the partnership dispute lawyers at VLF take steps to protect your:
For example, a minority shareholder in a prominent Houston machine shop came to legal blows with his partners in court. Vethan Law Firm obtained the dismissal of the claims against the minority partner and successfully prosecuted his counterclaims of profits believed to be illegally taken from the business. The other shareholders quickly settled after seating a jury.
When the right expectations are set at the beginning of a partnership, it is much less likely to devolve into a nasty legal battle. If the partnership is already on rocky shoals, Vethan Law Firm can help right the boat and charter a better course while defending partners from outrageous claims.
The Vethan Law Firm stands ready to represent your business aggressively to stop the bleeding and protect your business opportunities.

Mr. Vethan represented me and my business as plaintiff in a lawsuit. The case was over business to business contractual issues, fraud, and conspiracy committed by the two defendants. We prevailed. From the onset and throughout the entire process, he and his staff took great care to understand the dynamics of my business and the relationships of the involved parties, to reach the correct outcome in court. They made it a point to ensure I was kept up-to-date and involved in the process. I felt I was made part of a team effort working towards the goal of justice. It was very successful. I would recommend them to anyone with a legitimate issue because they are genuinely good people. Their performance was exemplary. They made it a point to discuss all available options in a manner that was easily understandable. They made time to ensure my comfort with each decision made. I didn’t feel lost and knew where we were at all times. That was due to his personal attention given to me. As compared to the representation given the defendants, I am glad Mr. Vethan was on my side of the aisle. Even during the trial, his good-natured personality filled the room to mitigate the usual tension that exists in a trial. With the post-trial activities, Mr. Vethan was highly attentive, making sure the results of trial were followed through. Mr. Vethan runs a first-rate law firm. He and his entire staff are very good at their job, genuine, personable, and a pleasure to work with. Not only do they do a super job with the case at hand, they provide guidance in what should be done to avoid future conflicts.
