Partnership Disputes

Legal Solutions for Partnership Disputes

A relationship between business owners is very much like a marriage. And as in marriage, conflicts in the relationship often center on issues of trust, control and money. To carry this analogy one step further — most business owners who experience problems with a business partner are not interested in talking to a divorce lawyer at the first sign of trouble. They are interested in working out their problems.

At Diemer, Whitman & Cardosi, LLP, we understand the complex relationship dynamics involved in ownership conflicts within closely-held companies and business partnerships, and our attorneys have extensive experience in this area. In previous cases, our firm has helped owners of professional practices, small manufacturing companies, service companies, retail stores, family businesses and other enterprises resolve disputes both inside and outside of the courtroom.

Resolving Conflicts While Preserving the Business

Many of the people who come to see us about a partnership or closely-held business dispute want to resolve those conflicts as amicably as possible and return to "business as usual." At the same time, doubts about the integrity of a business partner's actions, perceptions of unfairness and issues of control and decision-making power must be objectively evaluated and addressed before that can happen.

Our attorneys can help you evaluate the situation and all of the options you have to address it with an eye toward preserving what you have worked so hard to establish as a business owner. In many previous cases, we have been able to deliver creative, cost-effective solutions through negotiation or mediation.

Business Litigation

Acceptable out-of-court solutions cannot always be reached. In these cases, our clients have the confidence that comes with knowing their interests are being protected by a skilled and successful business litigation team. In fact, each of the lawyers at our firm has at least 25 years of trial experience and an equally long track record of outstanding results.

Our firm handles partnership disputes and similar matters for clients throughout Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. Schedule a free initial consultation by contacting Diemer, Whitman & Cardosi, LLP, online or by calling us directly at 408-971-6270.
