Even the best-intentioned business partners will encounter disagreements from time to time, and sometimes legal action may be required to protect your investments and assets. Disputes among partners or other business owners may arise from a failure to honor fiduciary duties, a failure to satisfy contractual obligations set forth in a partnership agreement, operating agreement, or other business contract, secret business dealings by a business owner that are not in the company’s best interests, or any number of other scenarios.

Litigation is not always necessarily the answer. We understand that business owners typically want to resolve internal conflicts as quickly and amicably as possible so that they may return to servicing their customers. Through alternative dispute-resolution procedures like negotiation, mediation, and arbitration, it is often possible to reach a solution that addresses the issues where your business partner falls short, all while still preserving the enterprise you have worked so hard to build as an entrepreneur. If you are experiencing a partnership dispute, contact the business litigation attorneys at Fuller & Fuller to discuss your options.
