Your partnership may have worked successfully for many years, or it may have deteriorated quickly. Either way, there may come a time when you are ready to end your Michigan business partnership.
What to Consider When Ending Your Business Partnership
You may have personal, business, and financial considerations when you end a business partnership. Careful legal planning may help you protect your goals. We encourage you to think about:
- Whether you want to liquidate your business, buy out your partner’s share of the business, or close your business. The terms of the sale or dissolution plan need to be negotiated.
- Your partnership agreement. Your initial partnership agreement may provide direction on how to proceed.
- Your relationship with your soon-to-be former partner. The personal relationship may be important to you, and ending a partnership can be tricky. The actions you take and the way the partnership ends may significantly impact your future relationship.
Once you identify your goals, you can take legal action.
