Los Angeles Business & Corporate Litigation Attorney

Business and Partnership Disputes

An unfortunate reality for many business owners in Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, or other areas of Southern California, is that disputes between business partners can arise. There are various reasons why business partners may end up in conflict, and these conflicts are often handled internally. However, it may be necessary to enlist the assistance of a skilled business and partnership attorney in Los Angeles. At the Marcarian Law Firm, our attorneys have experience helping businesses and individuals within limited liability companies, corporations, partnerships, and joint ventures handle a variety of business dispute matters.

Business and Partnership Disputes Must be Resolved

Under California law, business partners have a fiduciary duty to one another. These fiduciary duties and obligations involve not only the internal operations of the business but also dealings with third parties such as clients, customers, and vendors.  It is critical to understand your rights and obligations in relation to all aspects of the business.

Partnership or shareholder disputes can often result in lost profits or the destruction of the business itself. However, careful planning and skillful conflict resolution can help prevent disastrous outcomes. Whether you are forming a new partnership, LLC, or corporation or facing a dispute with your business partners, it is wise and cost-effective to engage a skillful attorney as early in the process as possible.

It is critical that you address issues, or even potential issues, that could lead to a business or partnership dispute. Keep in mind that it is usually costlier and more difficult to try to deal with the dispute once it has arisen than working to prevent problems before they arise. Some potential issues that the Marcarian Law Firm helps clients with on a regular basis include:

  • Creation or amendment of partnership agreements
  • Creation or amendment of operating agreements
  • Creation of articles of incorporation
  • Claims for breach of fiduciary duty
  • Claims for conversion or misappropriation of funds
  • Partnership disputes or dissolution
  • Business, LLC, or corporate disputes or dissolution

Each of the issues mentioned above has the potential to become very complex. Partnership or business disputes may be dealt with through various methods of dispute resolution, including:

  • Negotiation
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Litigation

Regardless of the method that you choose to resolve your partnership or business dispute in Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, or Southern California, you need to seek assistance from a skilled attorney who can help you get through this.

In the event a business or partnership dispute creates a division that simply cannot be repaired, it may be necessary to dissolve the partnership or business. The team at the Marcarian Law Firm is ready to help you with all aspects of this process as well, and we will work to ensure that assets and debts are divided fairly and that your rights are protected.
