Dallas, Forney and Rockwall are hubs for small to mid-size businesses that operate as partnerships. These areas are growing at incredible rates and businesses are flocking here because of the need for services. Because of this, Guest and Gray, P.C. is seeing a huge uptick in the amount of partnership disputes that have arisen as a result of the intense residential and commercial growth when the partnership has not worked out exactly as intended. Maybe you find yourself in this situation.
The truth is that you never thought this could happen and certainly never wanted it to, either. Does this scenario sound familiar: you and a long time friend or business associate opened a business together some years ago, and although things went well for the first few years, the relationship has soured and now it seems like an impossible situation every day you go to work. The environment has become hostile and the business is now suffering because of it. Does this sound like you? This is what is called a partnership dispute. The dispute can arise from management styles, business debt, or poor performance of one of the partners or business itself. It can also arise from one party acting on his own and taking partnership business or profits for himself. It can be the result of darn near anything.
Partnership disputes have almost the same feeling as a divorce. Although more than two people can enter into a partnership, the usual scenario is that two people started a business together and now there is some infighting or “infidelity” and the partnership is now suffering as a result. Now one or both of the partners want out. It essentially amounts to a business divorce.
