Thank you for your question.

The answer is "yes", he can. Since he is a partner of the business, even if a small partner, provided he owns more than 10%, he is able to restart the business if he so wishes and run it himself. There is nothing improper or illegal here, you both had ownership rights to the company, and once you indicated that you closed it, he as the other partner could take it over.

Good luck.

Thank you... I no longer have anything to do with the company i closed that my partner reopened. I'm not liable or have anything to do with this company reopend. Am my responsible at all for anthing on this company being reopen. I want nothing to do with this company. Am I still bound to this company even though i closed it and my partner reopened

Thank you for your follow-up.

If the company had any outstanding debts when closed, or for any debts or obligations prior to reopening, you would still be liable. Going forward you would not be--just make sure that your name is XXXXX XXXXX anywhere, and that he opened it solely under his name so as to terminate your liability to the business.

Good luck.
