As businesses grow and evolve, it's not uncommon for partners to get into disputes with one another. Unfortunately, they end up disagreeing about the future of the business, its direction, and where it wants to go. We work with our clients when the partners get into disputes. We often represent one partner or the business when there's a disagreement among the partners and our goal is always to keep the value protected and to move the business forward.

The disputes are unfortunate, and there are many reasons for them. Sometimes it's a disagreement about the future direction of the company or somebody's actions or a common misunderstanding. Regardless of the reason for the dispute, we work with our clients to assess the situation, to learn what's going on, to understand each side’s needs, and to talk about possible solutions and ways that we can keep the business moving forward. We want to make sure that even though the partners have gotten into a dispute, that we don't end up in lengthy litigation or other processes. We want to get the dispute ended. We want to get everybody back on the same page, and we want to keep the business moving forward.

We can work with our clients on working through the partnership dispute process, to maximize the chances of a successful outcome, and to protect and grow the value of the business.
