What can I do about a breach of a verbal agreement?

Question Details: I manage one area of a company that has been very profitable. The managers of the other areas in the company lost a lot of money. The owner legally split the company into 2 companies. The one I manage is the new one that is under a different name. I bought into the company that I manage with only a verbal agreement. The owner immediatley took my investment and used it to pay on the other company's debt. It was agreed that money was to be used to make the one I manage a stand-alone company. Then the owner started selling off the assets of the new company to "save" the other one and never gave me distribution. Is there anything I can do?
