Other Practice Areas

Shareholder Litigation & Disputes

Oftentimes when partners or equity owners of a closely held entity, LLC, or partnership cannot agree on business decisions, there is a need to engage an attorney to help sort out the dispute. Some areas that may need seasoned legal representation are:

  • Breaches of fiduciary duties
  • Violation of shareholder rights
  • Mismanagement of funds
  • Breaches of covenant of good faith and fair dealing
  • Operating agreements
  • Fraud

Mr. Faul is knowledgeable in the investigative, strategic and adversarial demands that shareholder and partnership disputes can provoke. He and his staff can assist clients towards a favorable outcome and focus on key issues that avoid frivolous or unsupported claims and defenses.  

Michael Faul, Jr., is a highly competent litigator with over 30 years of practice in this area of the law, and who has appeared before and retained some of the most experienced former jurists in mediation and arbitration in New Jersey and New York.

Environmental Litigation

In today’s evolving business environment, companies need to be aware of their responsibility to local communities and the global impact their actions have. State and federal regulations are extremely complex in this area of the law and therefore compliance has taken on additional importance to companies and the way they conduct business. Sometimes, even the most ardent environmental supporters can find themselves embroiled in conflicts with regulatory agencies and community watchdogs. Innocent companies who don’t perform due diligence can find themselves named a “potentially responsible party” in another’s lawsuit.

Anthony J. Reitano, Jr., is the head of the Herold Law Environmental Law practice area, and along with Michael Faul, Jr., works with businesses that find themselves facing compliance issues and risks, liability, and loss of reputation. Mr. Reitano and Mr. Faul are experienced in advising their clients about the complexities of environmental laws and regulations and most importantly, will diligently work to limit a client’s exposure and remedy any legal issues that emerge, enabling business operations to continue with assurance.
