New book offers insight on strategy and tactics for business divorce negotiations and litigation
Memphis, Tenn., (September 22, 2011) - Bass, Berry & Sims is pleased to announce the publication of The Guide to Business Divorce, the latest book by Bass, Berry & Sims Member Richard R. Spore, III.
Published by the American Bar Association Business Law Section, The Guide to Business Divorce provides strategic guidance for company owners who find themselves in conflict with their business partners and are considering a break-up, or "business divorce." Spore's book includes substantive tips on how to maximize benefits and minimize losses from the moment the "trial of arms" takes shape to its final resolution.
The Guide to Business Divorce also includes an in-depth look at the potential impact of litigation and alternative dispute resolution in a business divorce, with specific counsel on the pros and cons of each. Written in plain cogent English, Spore's book is of equal interest to lawyers and their clients.
"This terrific, readable volume fills a real niche," said attorney Rex Brasher with Brown & Brasher.
"Going beyond the front page struggles of corporate giants, Richard addresses the myriad issues that are so critical for smaller companies when their owners are in conflict."
Specializing in business and transactional law, Spore has more than 25 years of experience in the legal field. He has advised investors and private company owners in a wide variety of investment partnerships, joint ventures, start-up situations, and business divorce cases across a wide range of industries, including real estate, technology, healthcare, manufacturing, and trade. Spore has been recognized by many peer review organizations, including Best Lawyers in America® and Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business.
Spore's authoritative articles on LLC law, real estate joint ventures, and partnerships have appeared in numerous regional and national publications. The Guide to Business Divorce is Spore's third book on partnerships and business law topics.
