Resolving issues for your business partnership
When business partners fall out, it can put the operational future of an organisation in jeopardy. In the most serious cases, it can stop a business in its tracks and lead to the partnership’s dissolution and the company being wound up.
A partnership dispute can send out a message that things aren’t under control and staff morale, confidence and retention can be badly affected, as well as the wider commercial world.
Partnership disputes can also happen after a partner has left the organisation or once that business has stopped trading. There might be disagreements about the division of assets, use of intellectual property, or dealings with customers.
