Partnership disputes

New enquiries: 0800 118 1500

Two heads tend to be better than one; that’s why business partnerships work so well. Most of the time, these partnerships work well and everyday negotiations are made easily between you. However, it can be more difficult to meet in the middle on certain subjects, and this can lead to bumps in the road.

That’s where our Partnerships Disputes solicitors at Talbots can assist. We’re here to help you reach an agreement quickly and efficiently so both of you can continue to focus on the future of your business.

When you go into business with someone, you create a bond of trust and understanding. However, a variety of issues can cause a conflict between you. It could be a violation of the partnership agreement, disagreements with the way the business should be run, differences regarding the division of business profits, unethical practices or failure to fulfil business duties.

Our partnership disputes team have worked with a wide range of issues, and are always prepared to reach a rational agreement as soon as possible.

What happens if I don’t have a Partnership Agreement?

Our specialist partnership disputes solicitors can help you under the Partnership Act 1890. However, this act has a few discrepancies. For example, if you wish to remove a partner for whatever reason, this act cannot help you do so – if there is no written agreement between you, you may have to dissolve the partnership completely.

This can be a complicated process, but it’s nothing that our team at Talbots Law can’t handle. If you find yourself in a situation where you do not have a partnership agreement, contact our partnership disputes solicitors and they will give you the advice you need – completely jargon free.

What if I do have a Partnership Agreement?

This makes matters a little more straight forward. The agreement should be well thought out and comprehensive, so will be a real asset when resolving issues between you. We always aim to settle matters quickly and efficiently outside of court through mediation, or whatever mechanism you prefer.

Through your agreement, we should be able to decipher whether a partner can be removed and what will happen to their share of partnership assets and possible debts. Overall, with a partnership agreement in place, a resolution can be made a lot faster, therefore saving you a lot of time in the long run.

What is the best way to resolve a partnership dispute?

We always recommend negotiation or mediation first, as you may find that your issue can be resolved outside of court. With our partnership disputes team by your side the whole time, you can be confident in the knowledge that you are in good hands. By simply discussing your issues in a sensible and rational way, a resolution is far more likely to happen. Throughout the whole process, you will never have to go it alone; our team are always there to offer legal advice whenever you need it.
