Partnership Disputes & Business Divorces

It may be a cliché, but it's true: Business partnerships are like a marriage; disputes are inevitable. Smart business owners and partners anticipate problems beforehand, and plan accordingly. The best way to handle disputes is to set clear expectations from the beginning and have a clear agreement on how to handle the disputes. Throughout Northern Virginia, our firm has become synonymous with high-quality business litigation services through effective negotiations and fierce litigation.

Common Sources of Tension Among Business Partners

We have handled a variety of business disputes across several industries, including but not limited to, real estate, technology, insurance, consumer electronics, retail, and food and beverage. Some of the most common problems between and among business partners include:

  • Your Business Partner Is Converting (Stealing) Assets Belonging to The Company
  • Your Business Partner Is Diverting Business Opportunities Belonging to The Company For His Personal Benefit
  • Your Business Partner Refuses to Account to You Regarding the Businesses Finances
  • Your Business Partner Has Stolen Valuable Company Secrets and Is Using that Information To Compete With Your Business

Thus, it is vital that you establish a clear mechanism for resolving business disputes before starting a business venture with your partner. Failure to do so may prove very costly.
