If you are faced with what you believe to be an inevitable dispute with your business partner‚ then the “big” question is can it be resolved at an early stage before the business is harmed and before significant sums are spent on attorney fees and a disrupted business. This “big” question will depend on a number of factors including:
Right now‚ as you read this article‚ you have a good understanding of how your partner operates and how she may respond. Consider that many follow a “knee jerk” reaction of challenging everything and contacting lawyers that‚ more often than not‚ are just intent on litigating. My suggestion is to plan out a real strategy with your lawyer and consider giving your partner slightly more than he or she deserves. Then consider (before making that offer) what you believe your partners response will be and if it is not positive then the best course of action may be to avoid negotiations all together and come out strong – file a pre-emptive lawsuit. Chances are you will be saving money in the long run and accelerate the possibility of a rational settlement. More often than not‚ endless lawyer threats (without action) result in paper exchanges (threatening letters) that just prelong a dispute.
