除合夥關係

許多合夥關係會在商業項目完成之後或這樣的關係不再有用處時解除。有時解除合夥關係的原因是該企業升級成為股份有限公司。其它解除合夥關係的原因包括破產,合夥人退休等情況。大多數時候,最初制定公司合約時,解除合夥關係的條款已經被包含在內。 

解除合夥關係的步驟

解除合夥關係的步驟在各州有所不同。在加州,合夥人需要登記一份細節詳盡的合夥關係解除報告。加州法律規定該企業需通知所有債權人,承包商,供應商和顧客等,與當初建立公司時一樣。企業還需要在報紙上刊登合夥關係解除聲明並保留至少12天。以上事項都完成之後,公司將無法再與其它公司或個人簽訂合約,而所有潛在的債權人有90天的時間可以陳報債權。

如果沒有經過充分準備,解除合夥關係會是一個漫長的過程。為了避免程序過於繁雜,您需要盡早起草解除合夥關係的條款,確保公司所有成員充分理解和同意。一般來講,雖然將這些條款包含在公司合約中並不是法律規定,但這樣做的話會有效加快解除合夥關係程序的速度。

在提交任何手續文件之前,您首先需要評估公司目前的情況,例如公司所制定的目標是否完成, 公司目前的價值,公司的財產和責任將如何分發,公司解散之後,合夥人是否還受合約制約等等。法院一般會將公司所有資產和責任平均分擔給合夥人,無論是否存在爭議。

公司解散程序開始之後,明確各項條款,合理分配資產和責任,有效保護自己不陷入糾紛非常重要。合夥人需經協商達成一致,確保各項條款沒有分歧。

解散公司的條款

如果公司沒有在合約中提及解散事宜,合夥人需要商議有關解散的條款。每個合夥人必須同意所商定的內容。如果存在利益衝突,最好的方法是聘請第三方來幫助合夥人協商出合理的解決方法。您也可以申請法院裁定解散,但這樣的方式費用較高,且不一定能為每一位合夥人提供最好的解決方案。

如果公司合約中沒有提及解散公司事宜,您最好起草一份合夥關係解除合約,以明確規定關於解除合夥關係的各項事宜,例如公司貸款如何償還等。這份約定能確保所有合夥人明確瞭解關於解散公司的細節內容,以保證不會在日後產生糾紛。

當公司的其它合夥人離開後,您可以選擇自己繼續經營公司。您可以考慮將公司的模式改為有限責任公司(LLC)。LLC中的成員的個人資產也被法律保護,無需為公司的債務或糾紛負責。值得切記的是,您需要通知債權人,承包商,供應商和顧客等所有與公司有關的人。解除合夥關係,您只需要充分準備相關材料,做好與合夥人之間的溝通與協商,就能確保解除合夥關係的順利完成。

What Our Clients Say

Starting a new business can be a bit scary. Aside from worries of failure, there’s also the hassle of making sure all legal paperwork are properly filed. I reached out to Mr. Wang (Tommy) because of his excellent reviews and reputation and I am so glad I did. He was thorough and meticulous in answering all of my concerns and took time to find out special laws and policies regarding the kind of business I am starting. I could focus on the daily practical side of starting my new office without worry because I felt Tommy was reliable and took my case seriously. My business is opened and it’s all been a smooth start because of Tommy’s help. I have plans to start another business venture in the next few years and I already know I’ll be coming back to Wang IP Law.

I came to Tommy for help reviewing a licensing agreement I had secured with a well-known manufacturer. Tommy made sure I understood all the details in the contract and he negotiated with the company to improve my side of the deal. I mentioned to Tommy at my first consultation that we were looking to expand throughout the US and were investing a lot of money to make a big entrance into the market. I did not think I would have my store open so soon but Tommy also has connections with the local area and realtors to help me secure the location for my first store in the Los Angeles area. Tommy works a lot with the local businesses and he understands how to transition from the Asian market to US market. Within 8 months my store was open for business and fully operating. I must recommend Tommy to any business owners looking for help with contracts and improving their side of the deal. Tommy has the knowledge and experience to make sure there is a smooth process to open for business here, and make sure that your company is set up for success.

I have been working on my Utility Patent for almost 4 years. I have hired and fired two very reputable IP firms because with all their expertise and reputation for being some of the top firms in IP Law, I felt a lack of connection and care in my product, time and financial investment. Then I found Tommy and his team. Tommy does not waste time. He and his team are professional and extremely thorough. After 4 years, I finally found a legal team that I felt spent the time to really understand the components of my utility patent. Tommy also very mindful of cost and how and where my money would be better spent. I really feel I am in great hands with Tommy and his team. They have been patient with my revisions. And most importantly, they made me feel that they fully understood the importance this patent is to me. It has been a great and comforting pleasure working with Tommy.
