When disputes arise among business partners, preserving the relationship and finding an effective resolution is often essential to the ongoing operations of the business. If the partners are still in business running, there fiduciary duties and accounting requirements owed to the partners. To facilitate a timely and effective resolution of your dispute, it is essential to have an experienced legal professional representing you.
Brown & Charbonneau, LLP has extensive experience representing clients involved in partnership disputes in a wide variety of areas including failed business ventures, family businesses, fraud, bad real estate deals and many more. With our 75+ years of combined legal experience as well as strong business and finance backgrounds, our Irvine business lawyers are prepared to help you find the best resolution for your organization. For example, can an owner who is an officer and director resign and start a competing company?

Irvine Partnership Disputes Attorney Can Represent You
When a business begins operations, a partnership agreement should be drafted to provide information on the rights and responsibilities of the involved parties. The agreement should specify how disputes are to be resolved.
If you have a partnership agreement governing your relationship with other business owners, the contract will play an instrumental role in resolving your disagreement. Brown & Charbonneau, LLP can assist with the interpretation and implementation of partnership agreement terms.
If no partnership agreement exists, open communication on the disputed issues is often the best way to resolve problems. It is important to keep emotions out of the discussion and to keep focused on the bigger picture of what is best for your business. At Brown & Charbonneau, LLP, our partnership dispute lawyers can help you develop a strategic approach to resolving your differences. We will work with you to understand your legal rights and options, to explore proposed solutions and to negotiate openly and effectively with your business partner.
Preserving your ongoing working relationship is essential to maintaining business integrity and our attorneys keep this focus in mind, while also ensuring we do everything possible to protect our client’s individual interests. Our representation is always tailored towards you and we make it possible to focus on finding solutions rather than focusing on problems.
