When individuals enter into a partnership together, the occurrence of a partnership dispute that is serious enough to warrant legal intervention is the furthest thing from their mind. However, disagreements about growth strategies, division of profits, branding and more, often result in disputes that require the help of a legal professional. If you find yourself involved in a partnership dispute in Florida, our experience in guiding partnership dispute will provide you with the legal guidance and support need. We have helped countless partners in businesses develop effective solutions to disagreements and legal disputes.
Common Causes of Partnership Disputes
Business partners are bound by fiduciary duties and obligations, and a breach of these duties can give rise to liability, and effect a business’ growth, future, profits, and reputation. Common sources of disputes include:
- Diversion or misappropriation of assets
- Breach of contract
- Failure to act in good faith, or assure loyalty to the endeavor
- Acts of fraud
- Lost business opportunities
- Real estate disputes
- Desire to dissolve a business
Because partnership profits and losses are recognized by partners, individually, these disputes can implicate an individual’s financial well-being as well, elevating the stakes and the consequences.
