What makes partnership disputes so complex?

Complex business litigation often involves shareholder and partnership disputes, where parties in a business relationship no longer see eye to eye. Every case is unique, but many times they merit not only compensation for monetary damages but also injunctive relief – a legal solution where the court orders the infringing partner to cease a specific action.

Injunctive relief might be necessary if one partner is infringing on the other’s intellectual property, breaches his or her fiduciary duties, or tries to “poach” or unfairly take clients or key employees for themselves.

What Business Theft Looks Like & What to Do If Your Partner Is Stealing

In a business partnership, dishonesty can take many forms. If you suspect that your partner is stealing from your business, now is the time to speak with a Houston business litigation lawyer. In short, business theft happens when one person illegally removes or diverts any assets for their own, personal gain.

This type of wrongful behavior can take different shapes, such as:

  • Appropriating entrusted funds wrongfully (Embezzlement)
  • Stealing trade secrets or intellectual property
  • Violating fiduciary duty (such as removing funds from a business account for personal use)
  • Knowingly misrepresenting information and facts (Fraud)

Commonly provided practice areas in business and commercial litigation, include:
