Business Partnership Disputes

Unfortunately, many business partnerships go wrong.  The attorneys at Harris & Engler strive to structure partnership agreements and business operating agreements in such a manner as to provide a ready solution to any business ownership problems as they arise.  Many business partnership disputes come about because there was a bad partnership agreement (or no partnership agreement) to begin with.  Generally, most of these bad partnership agreements were downloaded on the internet and signed by the owners without really knowing the full meaning and repercussions of the agreement.

Fixing Bad Partnership Agreements

The attorneys at Harris & Engler are well versed in dealing with the repercussions of bad partnership agreements and other business contracts.  Generally, when you download a form or contract on the internet and use it for use in your business, you get what you pay for.  Some types of agreements simply need to be custom made.  

The strength of a partnership agreement is usually tested when one partner wants out of the business, or when a partner wants to forcibly get another partner out of the business.  A bad partnership agreement makes this process more complicated because the bad agreement might not even provide for a partner's exit, or it might not provide for a partner's exit in a desirable manner.  The attorneys at Harris & Engler try to structure partnership agreements in a manner that would prevent problems before they arise. However, often times when there is a partnership dispute, one partner files a lawsuit.

Partnership Dispute Litigation

While it is usually desirable to settle partnership disputes without resort to litigation, sometimes the only way to get things done is to file a lawsuit.  Partnership disputes often devolve into a lawsuit for disputes centered on the dissolution of the partnership, the transfer of power, partnership interest buy-outs that have gone wrong, force outs, or freeze outs.  When your business interest or the underlying business is at stake, then you need an attorney experienced with satisfactorily resolving partnership disputes.
