Breaking Up With Your Business Partner — Getting Out Without Losing Your Shirt
Starting and operating your own successful, privately-held business is the culmination of the American dream for some people. All too often, however, things start to go terribly wrong. Maybe your so-called partner is trying to push you out and claim ownership of the company. Perhaps your former employee has started his own company and is trying to take your customers and trade secrets with him. Maybe a competitor is using unfair tactics to jeopardize your business operations. Or perhaps running a business isn’t turning out to be everything that you imagined and you simply want out. Like the breakdown of a marriage, the breakdown of a business, especially when it involves the business founders or their family members, can be contentious, emotional, and extremely messy. Whatever the case may be, it is our job to fight for and protect your rights during the divorce of your business.
