Partnership Disputes

Partnership Disputes

A partner has a right to manage and actively participate in the partnership. Most partnerships are created by a written agreement outlining the terms and conditions of the enterprise. This agreement will determine the rights and duties of each partner, as well as detailing the manner in which a partner can withdraw from the partnership. However, a partnership can still exist even in the absence of a written agreement based on the day to day activities of its members. In any case, partners have the right to examine all books and records pertaining to the business's activities. If a partner is denied any of the basic rights associated with partnership, such as exclusion from business operations, this denial may be grounds for dissolution of the business.

While running your business, your priorities include selling products or services and making a profit. In an ideal world, all of your business partners will get along and agree on all decisions. Unfortunately, even the best-intentioned partners will occasionally disagree on issues such as the direction of management, interpretation of the company's governing agreement, finances, or distribution of duties. The last thing you need in your demanding schedule is a legal dispute involving partners that threatens the daily operation of your business. Such disputes must be resolved as quickly as possible to avoid a disruption. In the event of a partnership dispute, you need an experienced attorney to help protect your company's interests and to guarantee a quick resolution.
