Options When Faced with a Partnership Dispute
So‚ what are your options? Well the asnswer naturally depends on how far along you are but I will assume that you are at the point where the relationship is broken and either the business needs to be sold‚ split up or one partner buys out the other. If this is where you are at‚ then the answer is that you need to be proactive and‚ more likely than not‚ do not have the luxury of waiting any longer.
Many times one partner will move assets‚ establish a competing business‚ misappropriate funds or lock his or her partners out of the business.
