Legal Answers
238 Questions Answered
Q. I am in a partnership dispute. I am a member of a 50/50 partnership. We both agree to dissolve the company.
A: As Mr. Soble said, these are typically the subject of an agreement between the partners. It might be possible to formulate an argument that relief is available from a court based upon concepts of unfair competition, but you have not supplied facts to enable an evaluation of the application of "unfair competition" or a similar concept.
Q. Seller is unable to proceed with closing due to financial situation. What are my rights, and what action should i take?
A: Your remedies depend in part upon the terms of the sale agreement. I would need to review the agreement to give a more precise answer as to remedies. You may be able to file a lawsuit to compel the seller to close. That's called specific performance. You may also be able to sue for damages. Perhaps there's a more creative solution, such as addressing the seller's financial problems.
Q. Would you consider online paralegal certificate program through a community college a good way to become a paralegal?
A: Yes. I don't have any familiarity with the online programs, but the paralegal programs at community colleges that I have heard about are credible and can lead to a successful career in the field.
