Medical Practice Break Ups
Business ventures usually begin with trust and optimism. But unforeseen problems are a fact of life in business, and unexpected adverse circumstances or disputes can be reasons to conclude the business relationship. The need to dissolve a medical practice can derive from many circumstances, including disagreement about the direction for the business; the inability of a partner to live up to financial obligations or perform required duties; death or divorce of one partner; deadlock on material business issues; abuse or theft of financial resources of the business by a partner; breach of fiduciary duties owed by one partner to other partners; unfair competition with the business or misappropriation of a business opportunity by a partner; and many other circumstances.
A medical practice break-up is sometimes referred to as a "business divorce," whether the owners dissolving are shareholders, legal partners, LLC members, or investors. Our health law firm has extensive experience in business divorce breakups and litigation. Unfortunately, business divorce litigation is often more emotionally taxing and financially damaging than domestic divorces. Former good business partners become hostile foes, fighting about business and financial interests upon which partners are highly dependent for their livelihoods. If a business divorce is unavoidable, obtaining the objective point of view and assistance of an experienced medical practice litigator is a critical effective first step in protecting personal interests.
