Legal Counsel for Partnership and Shareholder Agreements


Regardless of the type of business organization involved, formative documents provide the most basic instructions for how a company should be run and are crucial to enumerating the rights and duties of the various stakeholders. Clarity and comprehensiveness in these documents is vital to the life of a business. And efficiently resolving disputes when they arise can help companies avoid costly litigation and management gridlock. Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe’s attorneys have counseled businesses regarding shareholder agreements and other corporate governance issues for more than 30 years. Our satisfied clients include partnerships, corporations and limited liability companies of all types and sizes throughout West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.


For newly forming companies or existing companies going through periods of restructuring, the thorough, knowledgeable attorneys of Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe can assist in drafting, reviewing and modifying fundamental business documents, including:

  • Partnership agreements
  • LLC operating agreements
  • Articles of incorporation
  • Corporate bylaws
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Buyout agreements

Our attorneys also assist clients with dissolving existing business entities, including settling outstanding debts and distributing business assets to stakeholders.

And when disputes between partners, members or shareholders occur, our seasoned lawyers can help to constructively resolve them through alternative dispute resolution or litigation if necessary. We rely on our substantial drafting experience and knowledge of corporate law to advise our business and entrepreneurial clients of their rights and obligations under the relevant agreements or bylaws and to construct compelling arguments for interpretations of these documents that favor our clients.
