Business partnerships begin and business partnerships end. Like a divorce between husband and wife, the ending of a business partnership can range from friendly to bitter. Only lawyers win in a bitter business divorce. The business itself usually suffers, not to mention the lifelong personal relationships.
Our business and corporate lawyers can help you plan for and navigate the end of a business partnership, whether that takes the form of a buyout, a separation of one business into two, or some other form. We will represent you forcefully in litigation if necessary, as forcefully as the situation calls for. For most clients, however, a friendlier separation is better. With deep knowledge of the laws and deep experience structuring creative solutions, we can help.
