William B. Esq. :

Dear Customer, thank you for using our service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you today.

William B. Esq. :

Your partner has breached their fiduciary duty to you by taking an asset to the partnership for personal use.

William B. Esq. :

Similarly setting up a business in direct competition to the partnership constitutes a breach of fiduciary duty.

William B. Esq. :

By entering into a partnership each of you owes the other a duty of good faith and fair dealing of the highest order, and taking business from the partnership constitutes a breach. To enforce your rights you can file a lawsuit against your partner to reclaim this business loss. You can also get a court judgment for injunctive relief regarding the competing care home.

William B. Esq. :

If you wish to try resolutions short of litigation you can attempt mediation or arbitration (in my experience trial is equally effective to arbitration).

William B. Esq. :

I hope the above is helpful, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to let me know and I will follow up quickly.
