Jacobs Law Group Founder and Managing Attorney Neal A. Jacobs acted as course planner and presented as part of a CLE on business divorce for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute.

The program, “Business Divorce: Startup to Litigation to Resolution” was held on Nov. 6 in Mechanicsburg, Nov. 8 in Philadelphia, and Nov. 13 in Pittsburgh. The program on Nov. 8 also was simulcasted to additional Pennsylvania locations: the Berks County Bar Association in Reading, King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, the Westmoreland I.U. 7 in Greensburg, and York County Bar Center in York.

Designed to help lawyers, law clerks, and paralegals understand the complexities of business divorce, the program will cover essential strategies and tactics for dealing with the legal and business aspects of shareholder and partner disputes in privately held companies.

The course helped attendees learn what they must know when advising a client involved in a business divorce:

  • Identify the various parties and positions
  • Understand the multiple issues that must be considered
  • Business law issues
  • Litigation issues
  • Computer Forensics
  • Ethics

Jacobs, one of Pennsylvania’s leading attorneys focusing on business divorce, was joined by Jacobs Law Group colleagues Matthew A. Cole and Samuel M. First; attorneys Eric C. Milby, James C. Sargent, and Jennifer Platzkere Snyder; and business valuation professional Megan Salehli. The program offered 5 substantive credits and 1 ethics credit.

Jacobs focuses his practice on complex corporate, business, and litigation matters. He devotes particular attention to privately held companies and their shareholder and member relations. Jacobs also handles complex corporate matters involving the rights and obligations of management and the various classes of equity holders and lenders. He is frequently called upon to solve deadlocks and disputes between ownership groups and to help find business-oriented solutions to joint ownership matters. Jacobs provides counsel and representation to privately held companies, founders, entrepreneurs, major and minority shareholders, and private equity funds and venture capital companies.

He is a graduate of Cook College, Rutgers University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics and the Rutgers University School of Law, Camden, where he received his J.D. with honors.
