$4+ Million "Family Farm" Estate Litigation

When the patriarch of the family farm passed away, he willed the property equally to his three grown children. One wanted to work the farm with her husband, but could not afford to buy out her siblings at market value. So she negotiated a contract for a below-market purchase and very favorable mortgage terms in exchange for sharing the profits of any eventual sale of the property down the road. Over time the farmland became very valuable. The farmer sibling secretly transferred ownership of the property to a private holding company and sold the development rights without sharing the profits promised to her other siblings. Our business litigation attorneys uncovered this scheme and built a case that led to a quick, favorable settlement for our clients.
