Can you sue your business partner?

You never wanted to sue your business partner, but things have gone poorly, and you feel like you have no other option. Is it possible to open up a lawsuit against this individual, and why would you want to do it?

As you may have suspected, it certainly is possible, and it does happen. Your business partner is not protected from legal ramifications just because the two of you worked together.

There are numerous reasons why you may want to take legal action against your business partner. They include things like:

  • Your business partner sabotages the company's ability to succeed.
  • Your business partner harms the company's reputation in an irreparable way.
  • Your business partner gives away trade secrets or confidential corporate information.
  • Your business partner leaves the company and starts or joins the competition, intentionally taking valuable information with them despite having a nondisclosure agreement.
  • Your business partner embezzles money from the company for their own gain.
  • Your business partner spends the company's money in a way that was not permitted and that does the company serious harm.

Naturally, these are just a handful of examples, but you can see the common trend: The actions that person takes not only hurt you, but they also hurt the company. They cost you money, and they may set the company back for years to come. It's a serious issue that you want to make right -- and, in cases like embezzlement, it may even be a criminal issue.

If you find yourself in this position, make sure you are well aware of the legal options you have.
