William B. Hanley has been representing individuals and businesses in various shareholder and partnership disputes, such as contract disputes, since 1974. In many of these cases, the issue lies within the business relationships among equal partners or other shareholders.

The business relationship may have run into problems, resulting in confusion or disagreement about the roles or expectations defined in previous contract agreements. There may be a minority shareholder that is being socially mistreated or disrespected in the workplace. In family-run organizations, there may be confusion regarding work titles and contractual responsibilities.
