Why Should I Prepare For a Future Business Dissolution or Business Divorce?

Taking steps now to protect yourself as well as your business partners could make a future dissolution of your company a far less traumatic experience. Much like newlyweds, business partners in the early stages of their joint venture rarely foresee a situation in which they would no longer want to continue their relationship.

Some of the most common reasons for business dissolution include:

  • Difference in opinion as to what direction the business should take
  • Financial difficulties, which can also serve to bring smaller disagreements to light
  • Differences in management style
  • Retirement, or even severe illness or injury of a partner
  • Inability to work together
  • Unequal distribution of work load, especially when the pay is equal
  • Theft, fraud or other misconduct of a partner
