Understanding partnership disputes with skill and sensitivity.

When two businesses partner up, this merger is the responsibility of both parties.

They must trust each other, have shared goals, and work together.

But even in the best partnerships, disputes arise.

Team at Roston Carlyle Rojas Lawyers specially Varun Gupta, Brendon McKenzie and Maisie Taylor are great professionals with competent and outstanding skills. From the first meeting with Varun Gupta, we got assured that we are with right people and they proved it. No doubt they are most recommendable team of professionals. Throughout the process they kept us updated and were available all the time for any questions or concerns. We will again contact them and recommend to my friends and network.

Mysa was completely competent from start to finish, she seamlessly guided us through the legal process and was very informative, no question was too small. The RCR Lawyers team was there with us from the beginning to the end and helped us achieve closure with a positive result and for that we are extremely grateful.

Upon meeting with Varun, I never doubted that he’s certainly a brilliant solicitor and true enough, with all the things he did for us, he really surpassed our high expectations. He is very responsive in everything and even to a small detail. He is very professional that he would give an honest advice and direct answers to all our questions and enqueries. He never left us especially in a critical situations (yes, there were a lot of circumstances but Varun fixed them for us) but actually, he stayed with us up to the last minute of the day or until to settle everything that we need to do. Thank you Varun for helping us to buy our first home!!!

My partner and I went through these guys for a complicated partner visa case after being referred from a lawyer friend. After being told by other lawyers that it was either easy or impossible, these guys told it like it was, realistic (they also had the same fees as the others). Peter and Shanalee were with us the whole way to provide guidance and 2.5 years later we are happy to receive the news that the partner visa has been granted.Thank you for all of your hard work guys.All the best.


Business partnership disputes can manifest in various ways


Money is often at the heart of partnership disputes. Conflicts can arise over profit and losses, capital contributions, or the allocation of expenses. Partners might have differing views on how to use or divide profits among themselves.


Partners may have conflicting views on the direction and management of the company. This can encompass issues related to business strategies, hiring decisions, and day-to-day operations.


Partnerships have agreements that outline partners’ rights, responsibilities, and partnership rules. Breach of these duties means violating the agreements.


Partners may need to see eye to eye on how to utilise or split profits among themselves. These disputes often strike at the partnership’s core and, if left unresolved, can jeopardise the business’s existence.
