Hello. The quickest way to maintain status quo so you can resolve the partnership issues is to file suit and ask the judge to grant a temporary injunction to protect the assets. If an injunction is granted, the other partner would not be able to control the assets until the issues are resolved. Without this remedy, you risk him making decisions on his own.
