Business litigator: is there any downside to permitting a

Business litigator: is there any downside to permitting a partner in an LLC to withdraw (permitted at any time by Op Agree with remaining partner's consent) other than losing any right to sue for future acts? Does the remaining partner lose indemnification provided for in a settlement agreement by not standing in the way of the partner withdrawing? What other disadvantages of the partner withdrawing might there be? In this case, the remaining partner is more interested in past acts and wants the partner out of the business to end its access to contracted services, clients and company assets that have been interfered with and damaged by the offending partner's wrongful acts. The remaining partner feels that this overrides any right or other item that might be lost if the offending partner withdraws but before taking a position on that, I want to ensure that I understand the disadvantages to the company and remaining partner of the offending partner's withdrawal.

I am a graduate student and an enterpreneur. Recently, I did

Hello! I am a graduate student and an enterpreneur. Recently, I did not receive financial aid for my school's upcoming semester, so I have to pay for tuition this semester. As an individual, I do not think I can write off the tuition as a personal tax expense; However, I do have an LLC and could use it to pay for the tuition. If I do this, can I write off the cost of tuition as a business expense? My education is related to both my business and my profession. Thank you!

I'm looking to go into business with a person who may be

I'm looking to go into business with a person who may be on illegal drugs or if he is clean currently, may revert to using again. He is still on parole but has created a business using an attorney and handles his payroll through a CPA. He wants a business partner and a cash investment to cover the purchase of a property. If we agree to split assets, profits, and business ownership 50/50, and he gets arrested for reverting to drugs at some future point, would I retain ownership of the property and assets? Would I at least retain 50% ownership of everything. My fear is the government could just come and claim everything and leave me with nothing because of his choices.

What about fiduciary responsibility etc?JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: We are planning on having her sign off of the corporation immediately.JA: OK. Got it.
