When you start a business with someone else, you enter into the partnership looking forward to helping each other build a successful organization. Often when entrepreneurs enter into business they don’t look ahead and plan for issues arising within a partnership, including owner deadlock, compensation and management disputes, and retirement or succession agreements. Unfortunately problems can arise and cause even the best partnerships to go awry.
One violation of your rights could be as simple as the failure of your partner to provide relevant information in a timely manner, but the breach of trust such a violation creates has even greater implications than just not receiving the information. Your personal relationships may suffer because of questionable business practices, making the litigation process as much about respect and emotional turmoil as money.
