Miami Partnership Disputes
Partnerships almost always begin with all parties seeing eye-to-eye about a shared vision for mutual success. However, sometimes things just don’t work out that way. A partnership might turn sour for a number of different reasons, but the most common partnership disputes tend to involve parties who rely on oral partnership agreements rather than clearly defined terms laid out in a written partnership or shareholder agreement.
Disputes that generally follow oral agreements often concern issues such as distributions, percentage of ownership, governance and management disagreements, and executive compensation. In short, partnership disputes can result from any breach of trust, real or perceived, between one or more partners against another.
A well-drafted partnership, shareholder, or operating agreement can help protect all parties involved in a partnership, corporation or limited liability company in the event of a dispute, and can help bring these disputes to a fast and mutually acceptable resolution if/when they do arise.
Corporate officers and directors owe contractual, statutory and fiduciary duties to the corporation and the shareholders they serve. Shareholders who disagree with corporate decisions or suspect violations such as fraud, self-dealing or conflicts of interests, might bring derivative suits against the officers and directors on behalf of the corporation. Shareholders may mean well and certainly have a right to protect their corporate interests, but they may lack a working knowledge of day-to-day operations at the company or insight into major business decisions. Shareholder derivative suits bring up complex legal and factual issues whether dealing with daily operational decisions or major decisions affecting the company at the corporate level.
