Despite the best intentions when forming a business, there are many times when business partners reach a point where there is no other answer but to dissolve the business relationship. Like divorces, the unwinding of a business relationship can be contentious and costly. In many instances, business partners have not adequately planned for a potential separation, either because the company’s operating agreement or other governing documents do not have the necessary provisions to provide for a clean and orderly division of the business among the owners, or because there is no operating agreement or other governing documents at all. This is often because, as in marriage, at the onset of the business relationship the partners never think they would ever split. While there are many attorneys who can form the various business entities, few attorneys have the specialized transactional and litigation skills to untangle and dissolve an often very complicated business relationship.
