By its very definition, a business partnership involves two or more people ― meaning disagreements among the partners are almost inevitable no matter how smoothly they run the business.

The Many Causes Of Partnership Disputes
There are a variety of reasons that legal disputes may arise among business partners, including:
- Management impasses: When the partners simply cannot agree on important decisions regarding the business
- Breach of partnership agreement: When one partner brings an action against another for violating the terms of the partnership agreement or breaches some duty owed to the partnership
- Buy-Sell agreements: When disagreements arise over the purchase of new company assets or the sale of assets
- Business separation disputes: When one partner sues to obtain an accounting of the business and a partnership dissolution, although, if the partners agree to go their own ways, they can simply agree to a business liquidation
However, these are merely a few of the many situations that may give rise to a legal dispute among partners. If you have questions about this complex area of the law and need to speak to an experienced business lawyer, contact Herman J. Marino Ltd., P.C.
