Partnership Disputes in California

Partnership Disputes – A central part to many businesses is a partnership. When trust is lost in a partnership relationship the business is often teetering on the precipice of disaster. Frankly, it is extremely commonplace that trust issues, money issues, or assignment of tasks issues arise that can create a partnership dispute or falling out.

Though most partners in partnership disputes should recognize that an expedient resolution to any dispute is critical, sometimes the personalities and perceived complexities get in the way of finding a satisfying resolution. There is a stalemate and the business is more at risk than ever.

If you are conducting business with another person or entity, it is important to know whether or not your relationship will be legally viewed as a partnership. This is so because a partner in a partnership has the authority to bind the partnership to an agreement, making each of the partners jointly and severally liable for all partnership obligations.

This means that if you are a partner in a partnership, your personal assets, such as your home, is at risk for any partnership debt. That is why people choose to incorporate and insulate their personal assets from the company’s debts. But, if you are in a partnership, you need to know! Under California law, a partnership is defined as an association of two or more persons or entities, formed to carry on a business for profit, as co-owners. Thus, two basic elements are necessary for you to be involved in a partnership: a community of interest in a business and the sharing of profits and losses.

A community of interest requires some degree of participation by partners in the management and control of the business. The requirement of sharing in partnership profit and losses permits the percentage division to be agreed upon by the partners.
