When Should You Dissolve Your Business Partnership?
When you’re trying to decide whether it’s time to dissolve a business partnership or not, the first step is to come up with the reasons why you feel you should. Are there any obvious incentives to dissolving the partnership now and striking out on your own or finding new partners to work with? One of the most common reasons for dissolving a business is because of business disputes. Here are some factors as to why it might be time to dissolve a business partnership and move on, but don’t forget to talk to a partnership dispute attorney in Seattle or Portland for more personalized and timely advice.
Is It a Serious Dispute?
There are all kinds of business disputes that could sour a partnership. You might disagree on everything from how to grow revenues to which location is right. Any dispute could potentially become too contentious to resolve, but it’s helpful to put things in perspective. If you’ve been in business together for a long time, you’ve come to understand each other’s points of view and likely value each other’s input. Your Seattle business litigation lawyer can tell you if you have a strong chance of coming out ahead in a partnership dissolution, but it’s generally better to use dissolving the business as a last resort.

Defamation, Slander & Libel
Your company’s reputation can be vital to its survival as a viable business. When someone defames your business through a false oral (slander) or written (libel) statement, you can legally hold them accountable for it. If you intend to sue, however, you should be prepared to prove that the defamatory statements were factually false and resulted in serious economic damage to your company.
For help with these or other business law matters affecting your company, contact us online or give us a call at (206) 565-0090 to schedule an initial consultation and learn more about how we can assist you.
