When two individuals enter into a business partnership, the related issues are much like a marriage; especially if you consider the relationship from a legal perspective. Conflicts in a partnership also seem to mirror those in a typical marriage; especially when it comes to trust issues, tug of wars over control or money. And just like married couples, most business owners who go through problems with their business partner aren’t interested in talking to a lawyer at the first sign that there’s trouble. Most want to work out their problems.
If you are having trouble or “signs of trouble” with your business partner, consider addressing the issue in the beginning stages by going to a lawyer trained in legal solutions for partnership disputes. It’s important to access the knowledge and experience of a good business attorney as the relationship dynamics of a partnership can be quite complex; particularly in ownership conflicts within closely-held companies. The business attorneys at The Law Office of Retz & Aldover LLP have extensive experience in this area. We have helped other business owners in similar situations resolve disputes both inside and outside of the courtroom. Get in touch if you need to discuss the resolution of your own partnership or family business dispute.
Many in the midst of a partnership dispute or family business conflict fear that involving a business attorney will mean losing the business. This isn’t necessarily true.
