This week I met a new client who had been in partnership with a bit of a rogue.
It seems the ex-partner was planning to exit, had misled various clients into thinking that he was the sole owner of the business and took a few of them when he left.
He altered a cheque and stole money from the Business account. He has been charged with fraud in relation to the cheque and further charges are about to be laid.
Once the client has the figures together we will also be sending a demand letter seeking:
- return of partnership papers so that the books can be completed;
- copies of his bank statements so we can check for evidence of more altered cheques; and
- payment of his share of the debts that he left behind;
So for assistance with partnership disputes –see Michael Paterson & Associates.
