Few things are as frustrating in business as a dispute between partners. The idea of a business partnership is that those involved will bring different contributions to the table and that synergies will be the result. Unfortunately, it does not always work out that way. A disagreement or dispute can be detrimental to one’s financial future. Resolving issues sooner, rather than later, will potentially prevent such detriment. Our Dallas, Texas attorneys have extensive experience in resolving and litigating disputes between partners of a business. If you are in such a dispute then contact our lawyers today to schedule an initial consultation.
Dallas lawyers working to resolve disagreements impacting a business partnership
There are several types of disagreements which can arise after the beginning of a business. Examples of these disagreements include:
- Disagreements over money owed to a partner
- Disagreements over characterization of a loan versus a capital contribution
- Possible breaches of a contract
- Fraud by one of the partners
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Arguments over how to dissolve the business
Such disagreements can be frustrating as many start a business because they enjoy a particular trade and not necessarily because they are a “business person.” Hiring an attorney can assist with navigating the process and allowing you to focus on the more important thing – actually running your business. It is important that you retain counsel with an understanding of these types of issues and we will work to resolve any disputes as quickly as possible.
