My Partner Is Breaching Our Contract. What Are My Options?

  • When you’re working with a business partner, you’re on a team with like-minded people. You may be sharing costs, business decisions, and other important tasks with your business partners. In many situations, you may be able to work in tandem with your partner to help your business thrive. 

    But that’s not always the case. You may have instead found a business partner who’s not working for the good of the business. Now, it’s hurting your company and your future. There are steps you can take to settle a business dispute between you and your business partner with the help of a reputable Las Vegas business litigation lawyer.

    Mediation Can Help 

    When you’re in a dispute with a business partner, it can be difficult to agree on a solution. That’s especially true if emotions are high after the breach of contract. You may find it difficult to come to a resolution without taking it to court. 

    Your lawyer can help you settle the matter in an informal setting, without taking it to court. Mediation can help you and your business partner determine how to proceed after the business dispute. In some cases, you and your lawyer may be able to reach an agreement that makes all parties happy. In others, you and your business partner may choose to dissolve the partnership. 

    In both cases, you have an opportunity to settle the issue without a long-term dispute in court. That makes things easy on you, your business partner, and your business. 

    Litigation for a Business Dispute 

    Of course, not everyone is willing to work together and settle the dispute. Your business partner may insist they did nothing wrong, for example, or they may pursue legal action against you. In these cases, mediation may not be enough. That’s where you may need a business litigation lawyer to help your claim. 

    Taking a business dispute to court can be a lengthy, complicated process, and it’s easy to make a mistake. When your business is on the line, you don’t want to risk a mistake. Your lawyer is well-versed in business law and contracts, and can help your claim succeed. They can review the contract you made with your business partner, find evidence of their breach, and represent you in the courtroom. 

    Work with a Lawyer About a Breach of Contract 

    When your business partner makes a decision that goes against your contract with one another, it can impact your level of trust, your ability to work together, and even your financial status. When you’re running a business, that’s a risk, and you may want to take legal action to prevent more problems.
