Whether you are forming or dissolving a business, getting a lawyer involved as soon as possible is usually a very wise choice. Corporate and partnership formation may not always require a lawyer, but our experience suggests that it is useful to include a lawyer in the process to avoid problems down the road.
If you are dissolving a partnership or corporation, a lawyer is essential in ensuring that your rights are protected. Your soon-to-be ex-business partner is certainly not looking out for your best interests. We strongly recommend getting a lawyer involved early in order to assist you in preparing an exit strategy, to advise you regarding the legal ramifications of any actions taken, and to be there in the event you are unable to end things amicably and must resort to the courts.
