WICHITA — Attorney Brad Pistotnik, who earlier this month left the Affiliated Attorneys of Pistotnik Law Offices to start Brad Pistotnik Law, has sued his former practice in Sedgwick County District Court. The suit also names his brother, Brian, who Brad Pistotnik previously said he’s practiced law with “forever.”
“It’s a pretty boring suit,” says Chuck Millsap, Brad Pistotnik’s attorney. “It’s simply a statutory method of dissolving a 50-50 corporation.”
Neither Pistotnik returned a call for comment.
“There’s nothing particularly exciting about it other than they’re two brothers,” Millsap says. “It’s a corporate maneuver to dissolve a corporation … when you’ve got two 50-50 shareholders who have differing ideas about how to manage the company.”
So were those differing philosophies what led to the split?
“I’m not going to talk about that, and I don’t think they are either,” Millsap says.
In the suit, Brad Pistotnik says he’s still a half owner of the firm where his brother remains and that he and his brother “are unable to agree upon the desirability of dissolving the Corporation and the disposition of the corporate assets.”
