Where to apply for required items, local city or state offices?

Recently I settled a workman comp case, and mentioned this to my lawyer the idea of using settlement to start my own business.

we are a wholesaler and we are not getting payments from our client. Can I tell our client the following "we are going to contact ____(our client's customer) to see why we are not getting paid and if they are not paying you. We know someone there, so we can try to find out what the problem is. Are they not paying you and is that why you are not paying us?" Our client's customer is a large corporation and they look down on any of their vendors who do not pay their suppliers (smaller companies like us). Or, can I just contact our client's customer directly and tell them that their vendor is not paying us.Thanks.

Please direct question ONLY to: GWarren Customer Advocate

Please direct question ONLY to: ***** ***** Advocate (JustAnswer member attorney)My question is similar to one you answered for someone else.I am one of two partners in a LLC founded in 2014 and that converted to a Sub-S for tax filing purposes last year.My partners separate corporation provided contract labor to our LLC and we had a signed agreement as to amount. He later claimed that he should recoup a substantially higher amount which he said he was out-of-pocket for for higher salaries he said he actually paid to the two staffers because they put in significantly more time than anticipated. For several reasons, while we agreed to a provisional amount to be further negotiated and agreed upon, that agreement has not yet been reached due to various points of disagreement over the amounts he actually paid out (he refused to permit our CPA to audit his payroll to confirm amount owed since it was posed as "recoupment") and because I discovered that he had diverted at least three opportunities from the LLC to his separate business.Because of the loss of our major client who did not renew their annual contract as of a few weeks ago, he began to be concerned that the business might fail and he might never collect and began pushing hard for the "debt" (payables) to be paid immediately out of what was left in the bank and the last of the incoming A/R. Because of my findings above and his failure to provide documents that he had agreed to provide to me in a phone consult with myself and an attorney (who unfortunately is currently out of the country), and other issues, my response to his proposals to collect on the receivable was that he needed to provide the promised documentation and to account for the opportunities that were diverted first which he justified regarding the first two and denied in the last instance.I just discovered that on this last Friday he cleaned out most of the cash in the bank (thousands of dollars) which will make it impossible to meet our payroll tax obligations or to fund officer salaries (his and mine). He is an authorized signer on the bank account but I handle the banking, A/P, A/R and payroll as Treasurer. I not only did not authorize this transaction but I was clear, and in writing several times, what the requirements were that he needed to meet in order for a decision to be made on a settlement amount of the payable.What are possible causes of action? If this makes it impossible for the business to continue, or for me to continue in the business, are these damages?
