In a way, a business partnership is a kind of a marriage. You have two parties that see the benefits of being together. They feel that, together, they can accomplish more. Perhaps they even genuinely like each other. Just like a marriage, sometimes it eventually ends. Sometimes the most prosperous of business partners can arrive at irreconcilable differences and eventually partnership disputes. Some of the most common differences leading to partnership disputes are:

  • Arguments over the management and direction of a company
  • Arguments over how profits are divided
  • Arguments over a business sale
  • Arguments over a minority owner or shareholder feeling oppressed or ignored
  • A minority owner getting squeezed out of a business
  • A majority owner breaching their fiduciary duties
  • A misuse of the company’s assets
  • Accusations of embezzlement or fraud
