You should seek legal only once you have exhausted your own attempts at resolving your dispute.
You may not have signed any formal contracts, but the act of two or more people setting up a business together and sharing the profit (or loss) is considered as a partnership in legal terms.
This type of agreement means that there’s a division of profits, decision making and how partners leave the partnership. Although formal documentation isn’t required for a partnership, we highly recommend that there is an official agreement drafted to cover assets of your business and your individual roles. You may wish to limit your liability and have a Limited Liability Partnership.
You need a written agreement to avoid the Partnership Act 1890, which dictate the arrangements between the parties.
A typical agreement will include but is not limited to;
The divide of profits and losses
Confirmation of who owns what percentage of the business
Each parties’ contribution
Control over decision making
How new partners should be appointed or existing dissolved
How disputes should be dealt with
Provisions for buy or sell out
How capital will be split on dissolution
