Many startup companies fail as a result of contentious disputes among the cofounders. Attorneys representing cofounders in a “business divorce” will encounter a myriad of issues in advocating on behalf of their clients as well as trying to resolve their clients’ disputes. This panel will feature the perspectives from a startup corporate attorney, a litigation attorney, and a mediator/arbitrator on how to navigate co-founders through these very contentious disputes.


  • Considerations on advising co-founders before the initiation of litigation or arbitration
  • The thorny legal and practical issues for litigators in representing cofounders in litigation or arbitration
  • The perspectives from a mediator/arbitrator on resolving and/or adjudicating co-founder disputes
