Business Divorce

“My Business Partner Ruined My Life”:
How To Avoid The Same Fate​

“Help! I need to divorce my lying/cheating/incompetent business partner.”


Maybe your partner is denying your ownership interest in the company or claiming more than his or her share.

Or a former employee started his own company and is now trying to poach your customers, steal your best employees, and take your trade secrets with him.

Perhaps it is something else:

  • Is a partner or officer acting beyond the powers they have?
  • Is a majority member or shareholder unreasonably oppressing a minority owner?
  • Are managers collecting excessive salaries?
  • Are partners willing to disband, but cannot agree on ownership of assets and proceeds?
  • Has a company insider stolen money that, for all you know, is being spent and will soon disappear?

Or perhaps you have been falsely accused of one of these things.
