Business partnerships can bring in additional investment and expertise and help your business grow, but this may also invite conflict between partners with differing management styles or visions. It is in the best interest of everyone involved to resolve these disputes quickly, with minimal acrimony between partners.
If you and your business partners are unable to come to a quick mutual agreement, it is important to hire a business lawyer who can represent your interests in any legal action or negotiation. Nevada attorney Tom Bradley has the experience and business knowledge to help. Contact his law firm at (775) 323-5178.
Situations That Can Create Partnership Disputes
You may believe that you don't need to hire a lawyer until your partnership dispute is set to go to court, but hiring a lawyer early in the dispute process may actually prevent a dispute from going to court. You may decide to resolve the matter through arbitration or mediation, or your lawyer may help you reach a settlement that satisfies everyone.
Disputes that can derail a business partnership include:
- How to divide assets, liabilities, and clients
- Who bears responsibility for a lawsuit against your company
- Partnership agreements that need to be renegotiated
- Disputes in areas not covered by your partnership agreement
- Issues with employment law or trade secrets
- Bringing in new partners or "cashing out" existing ones
Mr. Bradley can go through your existing partnership agreement and advise where you stand from a legal perspective. You can then decide what your best options are, and Mr. Bradley can defend your interests from a position of strength.
