About

All business relationships eventually end, but business partners often fail to plan adequately for the inevitable separation. When entering into a business owner relationship, the business partners would be well-advised to obtain counsel from a business lawyer on both managing the business relationship and planning for a future separation. But even with good initial counseling, the business partner will require the services of a transactional lawyer and/or commercial litigator at the time of the business divorce.

Learn from a transactional attorney and commercial litigator how to advise clients who are entering into business owner relationships or seeking to separate from their business partners. The presentation will focus on three common scenarios: (1) 50-50 owners who are active in the business; (2) inventor/manager and passive investor; and (3) partners in a law firm (where no individual has control). Through these hypothetical fact situations, the transactional lawyer and commercial litigator will demonstrate how to:

  • Evaluate the client’s position,
  • Counsel the client on conflicts that exist or may arise between the business owners,
  • Minimize the risks or scope of a future dispute,
  • Plan for a future separation,
  • Create leverage for negotiating a separation,
  • Identify causes of action against business partners,
  • Build a record for bringing such an action,
  • Pursue claims against a business partner, and
  • Negotiate a business divorce.


The presentation also will discuss ethical issues for the lawyer representing one or more business owners or the company in entering into the business relationship or the business divorce.
