When Friendly Business Deals Go Bad

Sometimes, even the best of friends (or closest family members) find themselves in the middle of a bad business deal. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with creating a business partnership with someone close to you, it can get ugly really fast if one of the parties does something that harms the entity or other business partner.

What to Do?

If you have a contract with your partner, you likely have legal standings to support your case against their wrongdoing. A breach of contract provides a more direct path as to who is at fault or responsible for certain business practices, especially when multiple parties are involved.

But even if you don’t have a contract, a good legal team can help you work through a messy business deal, fraudulent activity, or other bad business practices so that you don’t suffer the consequences (or at least the worst of them) of someone else’s bad decision.

From disputes to business relations (tortious interference), the legal team at Conley Griggs Partin Attorneys at Law in Atlanta are here to help you protect yourself and your assets. Whether you’re a small business owner or one that’s involved with multi-billion-dollar entities, we understand what it takes to navigate the frustrating legal process to fight for your rights. Even if that means dissolution or splitting the business up altogether.
