How Business Owners Can Avoid Deadlocks in Decision Making

19 Nov Woodward Logo

Are you considering starting a business with a friend or family member? If operating as a partnership or LLC, a well-drafted partnership or LLC operating agreement will be crucial to memorialize your economic agreement, organizational structure and key terms, and should include provisions designed to prevent deadlock if a disagreement later arises about important business decisions.

A disagreement concerning a major decision could impede the ability of a business to move forward, placing the future of the business itself in jeopardy. Even if the deadlock concerns a less important decision, the resulting frustration can be damaging to the owners’ relationship and thus harmful to the business. A deadlock could even lead to an expensive and lengthy litigation or to the dissolution of the partnership or LLC.

Deadlock-Breaking Mechanisms
Business owners can avoid this situation by entering into a well-drafted partnership or operating agreement containing provisions designed to prevent a deadlock from ever happening. There are a variety of potential solutions, and the following are among the most common.

Provisions Addressing Decision-Making Authority
In some situations (typically more appropriate for co-owners already having a solid relationship), the partnership or operating agreement could provide for a 50-50 split in profits, but a 51/49 split in control over decision making. Alternatively, in situations in which there is more potential for disagreement, the partnership or operating agreement could name a trusted and impartial individual familiar with the business having a two percent ownership interest who could act as the tiebreaker in a deadlock situation, but allowing the two general partners or members to retain equal ownership and control with a 49-49 split.

Buy-Sell Provisions
A buy-sell provision spells out a means by which one co-owner will buy out the other’s ownership interest in the event of a deadlock (and in any other circumstances specified). A buy-sell provision both encourages deadlocked business owners to find a solution to avoid triggering these provisions and provides a predetermined way for one of the partners or members to exit the business in the event the co-owners are unable to iron out their differences.

These potential solutions have advantages and disadvantages: For example, when co-owners or partners have enjoyed a positive long-term relationship, having a 51/49 split in decision-making authority may seem like the perfect solution. However, there is no guarantee that the relationship will continue to be problem free. Likewise, a buy-sell provision is meaningless unless each of the members or partners has the financial ability to exercise it. It is important to carefully consider which solution or combination of solutions is best suited for your particular circumstances.

Judicial Dissolution
In most states, a partner or member may seek judicial dissolution in situations in which it is clear that there is a deadlock in the management of the partnership or LLC that the co-owners are unable to break and irreparable damage to the business is threatened or has already occurred. For most business owners, this remedy is a last resort, as it inevitably leads to avoidable legal fees and damage to the business and the relationships of the co-owners. Judicial dissolution is much less likely to be necessary when deadlock-breaking provisions have been included in the partnership or operating agreement.

Call Us Today
Destructive consequences can emerge if a business is structured in a way that could lead to deadlock and the partnership or operating agreement lacks provisions for resolving such an impasse. We can help you to prepare a partnership or LLC operating agreement designed to prevent this situation from arising. Please contact us to set up an appointment to discuss this or any other issues related to the formation of your new business.

Waterblasting Technologies Celebrates Groundbreaking in Stuart

19 Nov Waterblasting

Stuart - Started as a small pressure-washing business before growing into a global leader whose innovative machinery ensures safety on highways and runways. Currently Martin County’s largest privately held manufacturing enterprise, Waterblasting Technologies is breaking ground on a large expansion that will enable the creation of more than 100 new jobs.

At 9:30 a.m. Friday at 3920 S.E. Commerce Ave., Florida Senate President Joe Negron as well as Congressman Brian Mast joined other elected officials and leaders to celebrate the groundbreaking of a 65,000-square-foot addition at Waterblasting.

By unifying its five buildings into a single-purpose factory, the total 100,000-square-foot facility aims to maximize efficiencies across an expanded product line with intents of adding 130 new jobs over the next three years to its current roster of 150 Team Members.

Hog Technologies has already hired former staff from the Lockheed Martin/Sikorsky facility in Jupiter—and is closely considering additional hires amid reports of future layoffs associated with the Blackhawk military helicopter program.

“This is amazing technology being created right here in Stuart—and it’s utilized all over the world,” says Congressman Mast, who recently visited the company to witness its construction of 10 runway cleaning machines for the Airports Authority of India. “The local job creation is extremely exciting. And that the fact that this Stuart company exports nearly 30 percent of its entire revenue base is really quite impressive. Everyone knows that there are enormous trade deficits these days, so anytime we can offset that, that’s great news, not only for our district, but for our country.”

Trabulsy Honored for Philanthropic Spirit

19 Nov Dana a

In Photo: Dana Trabulsy

For twenty years, Dana Trabulsy has been one of the Treasure Coast’s most enthusiastic cheerleaders. The Fort Pierce resident has always been generous with her time and talent. Recently, the Treasure Coast Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) recognized Trabulsy’s contributions to the community with the organization’s award for Outstanding Individual Philanthropist.

As owner of All Things Treasure Coast and co-owner of the Treasure Coast Business Summit, Trabulsy utilizes networking and marketing to help promote businesses and charitable organizations throughout the Treasure Coast, sharing good news about the community and its residents. Her tireless efforts to assist individuals and families on the Treasure Coast as an active volunteer have helped dozens of organizations locally, including Children’s Home Society, Hibiscus Children’s Center, the Jessica Clinton Foundation, CASTLE, Team Rd White and Blue, St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity, 211, Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, the United Way of St. Lucie County, and the Inner Truth Project, to name just a few. She’s also served as a board member for 211, CASTLE, and FPRA, and as a United Way Trustee.

Trabulsy generously broadcasts the goings-on and events of nonprofit organizations through her social media platform and successful marketing agency, All Things Treasure Coast, and she can often be found supporting community events by her presence and volunteerism. And while many are content to write a check or attend a charitable ball or dinner, Trabulsy isn’t afraid to get a little dirty in her efforts to build a better community – literally. Recently, she picked up a hammer and nails and recruited over 270 volunteers to help build a home for a Treasure Coast Family through Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program. In fact, it was Habitat’s own Melissa Winstead who nominated Trabulsy for the AFP’s Award.

Although there are many dedicated and worthy volunteers and philanthropists in St. Lucie County working hard every day to make the community a better, safer, and happier place to live, it must not have been too difficult for the Treasure Coast Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals to decide to honor Trabulsy as the 2019 Outstanding Individual Philanthropist. When asked about the award, the humble recipient was nearly at a loss for words, but thought for a moment and said, “I am beyond grateful to have been awarded this year’s Outstanding Individual Philanthropist Award by the Association of Fundraising Professionals of the Treasure Coast. Melissa’s nomination brought me to tears, and I congratulate all of the other nominees and award recipients. How fortunate we are to have such a wonderful community to serve!”

Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House Host September Women's Power Lunch

DSC_0013

Jensen Beach - The Women’s Power Lunch, started by Anne Thompson Schafer, connecting powerful women in business at Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House.

The Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House location is intrinsically unique, as it sits over-hanging the river’s edge. This special touch came when it was built by the famous historic movie star, Frances Langford. With such an appropriate placement, it gives it’s customers the most spectacular panoramic views. These exceptional views span from the Stuart Causeway all the way up the river to the Jensen Beach Causeway Bridge. Incorporate the restaurant’s superb location with The Dolphin’s signature dish, The Dolphin a la Dolphin, and it is easy to feel the impact of these surroundings.

Schafer says of the groups’ members; “You have made the Power Lunch what it has become, and what it will grow to be! Be who you are, present a message, and join in! This is a ladies’ group that provides networking and support, the two basic elements that make it the huge success it is today!”

What began as an afternoon luncheon for ten friends, has grown into a calling list of over three hundred women, and an attendance of over one hundred women at the monthly luncheons. Anne Schafer, the founder of the Ladies Power Lunch, attributes the success of the group to great networking and support for one another!

The energy that they all have is wonderful! The friendship and service given is awesome! As they go into their tenth year they look forward to many new friendships, togetherness, much laughter, meeting and greeting many, more women of interest ………….” we have much to be thankful for!”
