How Can a Lawyer Help in a Partnership Dispute?
There are a number of ways in which business dispute resolution lawyers can assist business owners and managers in resolving partnership disputes. Learn more by watching my video below.
The key to getting assistance from a solicitor in a partnership dispute is to involve them from as early as possible.
Ideally, a solicitor would be involved from the outset of a partnership and help by drafting an agreement so as to provide the business partners with greater protection than would be available under the Partnership Act 1890 or the Limited Liabilities Partnership Act 2000.
My top tip for partnership disputes is to contact a solicitor as soon as things go sour because you might need to make an urgent application for an injunction to protect the status quo. I would recommend you get a legal team together involving a dispute resolution lawyer, a barrister and perhaps a forensic accountant.
Your legal team should work for you and push your case as powerfully as possible and fight your corner.
In order to avoid expensive litigation, I would recommend that you ask a business dispute resolution lawyer if there are any issues that may arise and take legal advice on possible compromises should they come up.
