How Do We Reach Resolution to a Business Partnership Dispute?

My approach is unique and cost-effective. I believe it's better to avoid the fight and work it out rather than step in the ring and hope for a win.

Business Improves When the Tension Goes Away

But How Do We Do It?

You don’t have to live with the stress and tension of being of a broken partnership.  There is a way to fix the problem and relieve the pressure. It is miserable to work in your own business when you feel your partner is taking advantage of you. Let’s fix it. Save the money and the tension that comes with a legal battle. We can work it out and prevent a disastrous fracture. Together, we can achieve a business partnership resolution for you that your partner(s) will accept.

Here’s the process in a nutshell:

We start with a conversation. Help me understand your problem. All business problems are different. The better I know your issues, the more helpful I can be.

Next, I have a conversation with your business partner(s). They have a point of view as well. I need to understand the dynamics. Because I am not a lawyer, nobody has to feel threatened or defensive. I don’t look for fault, I look for ways to preserve the business (that’s our priority!) and bring a peaceful solution to your conflict.

Once I’ve heard from all parties, we sit down for a meeting to discuss proposals for resolving the problems. No actions are imposed on anyone. My job is to find mutually agreeable solutions. I will give you lots of ideas to fix the problem once and for all. When we’ve reached an agreement, we draft a resolution for the company’s records or have the company attorney (or a business attorney) draft any necessary documents. We can work out acceptable terms for a buyout if that’s the best option.

Once there is agreement on a course of action, I help you implement the solution and keep things calm. I can help coordinate the outcome with your attorney and CPA if necessary.

Remember, I am on the side of the business. I want your business to succeed so that you succeed. A business torn apart by dispute is of no value to anyone.

The goal is to resolve the situation without having to enter a court battle. Why risk losing when you can avoid the fight completely?

I have worked through some very tense situations and reached peaceful solutions. Just think about how good it will feel to have that tension gone for good.

I Am Afraid of My Business Partner

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.
