Business Partnership Disputes

The term Business Partnership Disputes covers all types of business ownership. As a partner, you owe each other loyalty, good faith, and fundamental fairness duties. These duties are called fiduciary duties. Breaches include partners competing for activities and misappropriating business funds and property. In some cases, this can lead to a lawsuit. This article will explain some of the most common business partnership disputes and how a litigation lawyer can help.

What Are Partnership Disputes?

Business partnership disputes arise as a result of various scenarios where the company’s viability is becoming threatened. When this is happening, objectives may be shifting, and distrust among partners may be growing. Ultimately this affects a business’s bottom line.

When this happens, partners may disagree on the company’s direction, the management of the business, and the terms of partnership agreements. Less complex issues may start to grow and become more significant disputes. Ontario’s Partnerships Act governs partner liability and partnership matters. Our corporate-commercial litigation lawyers are well-equipped and can assist in any scenario of business partnership disputes.

Avoiding Business Partnership Disputes
