The most common issues you are going to see is when the owners have different ideas about the future of the company. What can happen is one owner will want to reinvest in the company where the other one wants to maximize the cash-out. When you have divergent views where the company is supposed to go, that is a significant issue and both sides feel strongly the right. That can lead to disputes and litigation. You have situations where one party thinks they are being taken advantage of and in some cases a party will allege theft. That will of course lead to litigation.
