I get calls from frustrated business partners all the time. Often, the level of tension is so high, that one partner will move the banking, hide the books, take out a lump sum of cash, close out all social media, or some other drastic measure before properly closing out the partnership. This post explains when it is legal to take action in a partnership when a partner is disruptive.

These are the fiduciary duties of business partners

The Fiduciary Duties of Partners in a Business Partnership

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.
