Resolving partnership disputes

On Behalf of | Nov 21, 2022 | Business Law

Most people form South Carolina business partnerships to help them grow their businesses and make them more profitable. Unfortunately, business disputes can arise between partners, but how you resolve the dispute can make a big difference in the business’s future.

Business mediation

Mediation is the process of resolving business disputes through the use of a neutral third party. The mediator helps each business partner to understand the other’s point of view and then works with them to reach a mutually acceptable solution. Mediation is less costly and time-consuming than litigation, so it may be a good option for those who are looking for an efficient resolution.

Selling the business

When business disputes are too difficult to resolve, the business partners may decide to sell the business. To do this, however, business owners will need to obtain the consent of all business partners or obtain a court order. You may also need to hire a business appraiser to assess the business’s value.

Dissolving the business

In some cases, business owners may decide to dissolve the business if they can’t reach an agreement. This process involves filing paperwork with the state and getting approval from business partners. All business debts must get paid off before dissolution is complete.

To get started on resolving your business dispute, it’s important to understand the business litigation process and know what steps you need to take as it may have an impact on your business’s future.


If business partners cannot reach an agreement through mediation, they may need to pursue business litigation in order to resolve the business dispute. This involves filing suit and going before a judge or jury to make one’s case. Business litigation can be expensive, so business owners should explore other options first before pursuing this route.

No matter what business dispute you’re facing, it’s important to take the time to understand your options and find the best solution for your business. Ultimately, business disputes can have a big impact on the business’s future, so it is important to be aware of all possible solutions and make sure you are taking the right steps.
