So should you save or cease your business partnership? Is it worth it to try and find a facilitator to work through the years of baggage you hold against each other or just hire a lawyer and elect to use the shotgun clause to buy him or her out?
If you look back at what you’ve achieved together, you may think twice about dumping such an important resource for the firm. But at the same time, sometimes two business partners outgrow each other, or can’t make the magic together anymore. It may be time to split up.
But you won’t gain insight into which direction to take from a lawyer. You will start the process of ending the partnership and negotiating the payout. Then one of you will have to figure out how to grow the business again and recover from that big loss of cash you just paid out.
