Few business partnerships run smoothly all of the time. Clashing egos, a new partner, declining revenues, arguments over profits, or poorly drafted partnership agreements can lead to litigation or threats of litigation. Partnership disputes can be costly to your business. In many instances, you will need an experienced business disputes attorney on your side to help you resolve the dispute before it turns ugly, or fight for your interests in court if early resolution isn’t possible.
Our attorneys represent partners and small businesses involved in a wide range of partnership and commercial litigation, including:
- Breach of fiduciary duty litigation

When you come to us with a partnership dispute, you will want to discuss your legal rights and how best to resolve the dispute. Partnership disputes come in many varieties and are as unique as your business, there are no one size fits all solutions. Often your business is well served by resolving the dispute as quickly as possible to protect your assets as well as the businesses reputation and your customers. This almost always requires the help of an experienced and skilled business lawyer. We can help you investigate the issue and discuss your legal options. Many times we can work together and once all parties are aware of the legal landscape, a mutually acceptable resolution can be reached without a formal process. Other times, formal dispute resolution processes such as mediation or arbitration are a better option.
If litigation or arbitration is necessary, we can work with you to locate experts such as forensic accountants and business valuation experts to ensure that all available damages are presented. We will be there to assist you and protect your interests whether you decide to dissolve an unsuccessful partnership or to seek the recovery of lost profits or other damages.
