  • Partnership Dispute

    I have a question that is not immigration related. My dad and uncle have a business in partnership. There is no formal agreement, but their names are legally on as owners. My uncle has bought a another business of the same type in the same town and about 8 miles away. To me there seems to be a violation of some sort of uniform partnership law. Is there anything that would define conflict of interest on my uncle's side.

      You're asking this question as if you could reasonably expect that illegal aliens...who have already proven their lack of respect for the rule-of-law...to honor their obligations and commitments, whether formal or informal.

      Is this a business in which illegal aliens (the owners) work...er, illegally?

            Antivirus,
            Since there is no formal agreement, legally enforceable and where it prohibits certain activities of your uncle, it does not constitute a conflict of interest.

              Not gonna help if its gas station/convinience store but if its a franchise, might want to take a look at the franchise rules and territorial protection (if there's any).

                I tend to agree. A "non-compete clause" would be the element that would come into play. Nonetheless, I suppose absent a non-compete, if there is trully an issue of this new entity impacting the success of their partnership, I guess one could always argue that the uncle-partner has breached his fiduciary interest. That would have to be well documented, and I suspect that's not easy to do. Revenues can be impacted by many variables and to pin it down to one is difficult.
                The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.
