Sometimes It’s Best to Get Out of a Bad Partnership
There Are Right Ways to End a Business Partnership
Sometimes it’s best to get out when a partnership goes bad. I understand the stress. Before you say anything to anyone, please talk to me. There are no charges for a consultation and you can talk as long as you’d like. I’ll listen. You can ask all your questions.
Don’t try to do this alone. There is a right way to dissolve a partnership. If you are being frozen out unfairly, or if you have a partner that needs to go, please contact me. I can guide you through the steps to properly end a partnership.
Most Partnership Problems Can Be Resolved. Having a Neutral Party Mediate Meetings Takes Away the Pressure and Stress.
I work with clients in nearly every state and Canada. The goal is to help with your partnership and business issues in the least costly manner. Generally, we see real progress after only a couple video meetings. Most business issues can be solved by setting up processes that are reasonable and easy to follow. If it’s best to end the partnership, I can help you there too.

Dealing with Partnership Problems
You are wise to seek advice if you are feeling tension in your partnership. Lots of things can pull a business down, but the two biggest drags on a business are taxes and partnership problems. Both need to be treated seriously.

Partners take advantage of partners every day and they get away with it. It is the most painful call I get. It sounds like this, “I put all the money I had into starting our business. My partner had bad credit and no money, but he promised to do all the work to get the business going.
While it seems like it should be very easy to get out of an LLC, it can be complicated. Even if the business is very small, there are considerations beyond getting your money back. In this post, I’ll try to hit the important points of getting out of an LLC Partnership. These same items apply if you want to remove a member from your LLC too.
We often form partnerships because of the way the relationship works. One person wants to be in charge and the other is fine with that. Then something comes up and the expectations cause tension. We have to deal with the partner we have, not the one we wish we had.
If your business partner ever is violent, call 911 immediately. Yes, even if he missed. You want to document threats of or actual violence.
Partners in a business partnership, other than limited partners, have legal obligations to the partnership that are called the Fiduciary Partnership Duties. In this post, we’ll look at these duties and, hopefully, clarify what they mean.
When the business partnership breaks down, the darker sides of the personalities come through. A dominant partner turns into a bully. A person who does not do well with conflict will withdraw. As the bully gets more aggressive, the pacifist withdraws further. Eventually, the bully gets so angry they are ready to lock the other partner out. The pacifist quits coming in. The next blowout is over money. The course is as logically predictable as what will happen to your car if you hit the highway with no oil in the engine. It will get louder and louder until the engine seizes.
