I am so sorry to hear about the situation. Do you have a shareholders agreement in place?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Hello, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. My business partner is the financial handler and administrator and she has the only copy of the contract, I’ve asked her to scan and email to me. There should have been a copy on our server or hard copy in the office, but she has it at home.
Expert:  Mina Counsel replied 16 days ago.

If your shareholder agreement is properly drafted, there should be provisions that determine what should happen should you two came into a deadlock position.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Hi Mina, I will get the copy of that and then get back to you as it is probably useful to have to to hand when we talk.
Expert:  Mina Counsel replied 16 days ago.

Sure. I will leave this thread opened for now. Please come back when you have the information ready. Take care.
