Partnership Disputes

When a dispute occurs in a business partnership it can often cause problems not only within the business but also on a personal level.  Many of us form business partnerships with family, friends or acquaintances without a “Formal Partnership Agreement”. A formal agreement seemed unnecessary at the time as “We are all friends, right?” 

Unfortunately disagreements can cause the business to struggle financially and in some instances fail.  Our dispute resolution team can deal with these issues swiftly and sensitively whether there is a Partnership Deed or not, and help you to come to an outcome which suits you.

Common areas of disputes or discord include:

  • Underperforming Partners;
  • Personality Conflicts;
  • Financial mismanagement;
  • Disagreement of profit share;
  • Transfer & continuation of the business without agreement;
  • Dissolution.

We have a commercial and pragmatic approach to resolving these disputes, which means we aim to resolve the dispute professionally and efficiently.  However, if court proceedings cannot be avoided we are with you every step of the way, and are experienced in these sorts of dispute, having seen them through to trial on a number of occasions.

Call us for expert advice as early as possible.
