If a partner causes a financial loss by intentionally harming the business, that violates a fiduciary responsibility which could justify legally removing a partner.
Successful business partnerships are always based on mutual respect and an unwritten understanding that both partners want what’s best for the business so that “giving in” doesn’t mean surrender.
When one partner becomes totally beligerant and refuses to communicate, it is important to protect the other partner. These situations get pretty close to needing an attorney which can get very expensive.
We tend to wait until the situation gets very bad before we reach out for help. I understand. Let’s get started before the communication breaks down.
Can your business partner take you off the bank account? If you haven’t set it up correctly, he can. So watch this and act accordingly.
