Its recording practically prevents a party from selling the property until it can be dissolved. Butters Brazilian LLP resolves lis pendens issues, quickly and effectively.

Partnership Disputes and Dissolution
No one enters into a business partnership or joint real estate transaction expecting conflict. Unfortunately, many investment partnerships end up in disagreement and perhaps even unethical or illegal activity on the part of one or more partners. To avoid this type of conflict and the lengthy and costly litigation that typically accompanies it, many partnership agreements include provisions to help resolve such issues if and when they arise. But even well-prepared partners may face unanticipated conflicts or fiduciary breaches, from lost business opportunities or contract interference to fraud, that require legal expertise to sort out. At Butters Brazilian LLP, we are prepared to discuss all of your legal options, including mediation, accounting, and where appropriate, the voluntary dissolution and winding up of the partnership.
