Business Disputes Involving Partnerships
Partnership Dispute Lawyers in Atlanta
Partnerships are formed when two or more people go into business together. In order for such a partnership to run smoothly, a strong agreement must be made before the partnership is formed. Partnership agreements outline the role of each partner and their duties to the other partner(s) and to the company. Should this agreement be vague, or if the wording is misinterpreted, a dispute could arise that threatens the welfare of the entire company. An Atlanta partnership dispute attorney from Buckley Beal can help you establish the intention of a partnership agreement and settle a dispute.

Avoiding or Resolving Partnership Disputes
Most people will admit to never seeing a partnership dispute coming but the reality is that there are often warning signs on the horizon. With a careful review of those business red flags, it may be possible to avoid confrontation entirely. At the least, they can be studied to determine the best route for resolution, smoothing things over as fast as possible without compromising what you consider to be your best interests.
Several ways you may be able to entirely avoid or resolve a partnership dispute include:
- Written agreements: Contracts are king in the world of business, and there is no exception for when it comes to partnership agreements. Make certain that everything regarding your partnership is on paper and in clear, deliberate language. Do not worry if it gets lengthy; the more details and potential problems your contract foresees, the better.
- Discussion planning: Many partnership disputes simply worsen as time goes on because interested parties have not met up and discussed it. Make time in your schedules to meet up, sit down, and work on solutions to the disagreement. It is beneficial to focus on how to fix the apparent problems and not on who caused it or what it has done.
- Mediation: If careful boardroom discussions do not seem to be making any progress, it might be time to consider professional mediation. Acting as a neutral third-party, a mediator working for both you and your partners may be able to see a solution previously overlooked.
- Consultation: Not every partnership dispute is going to end positively for your business. If you have reason to suspect that this disagreement could spell the end for your company, you must consult with a business attorney as soon as possible to start exploring your legal options to defend your interests and reduce your liability for any future complications.
