Take some time to discuss the different scenarios that could happen and how you would handle them. This will give you the best chance to end your partnership on amicable terms and in a way that’s best for the relationship going forward. When necessary structures are not put in place and communicated, growth and profit are difficult to attain. However, when the right structures for your work are put to work, abuse is minimal and the parties involved may not need to become enemies at the thought of a dissolution. While we would not take sides with whether Hakimi was right to give his mother 80% control of his assets instead of the wife, one thing is clear, consciously or unconsciously he had set up a structure that would be beneficial to him without communicating it to his estranged wife. However, the goal of setting up structures goes beyond just getting immunity for self but for everyone involved in the supposed transaction or relationship. Featured Image Source: Daily Post NG
