The sudden death of a business partner can be a calamitous event for all interested parties, from the surviving partner to the estate of the deceased partner. For there is an expectation that one's business partners will not meet an untimely demise. So when it does occur, not only is it unfortunate and heart breaking on a personal side, it can be highly problematic on the business side.

The situation is only exacerbated when there is no partnership agreement or the terms of the agreement are inadequate given the business' financial situation. For where a comprehensive partnership agreement is in place, together with the partnership holding appropriate life insurance coverage over the life of the deceased partner, such that addressing the situation on the corporate end is largely procedural, where any of these elements are missing or inadequate, the situation can become highly problematic. Those problems only grow where the interested parties are incapable of coming to a compromise solution and thereby presses one or all sides to dispute the proposed alternate arrangement, given that the various sides are not capable of achieving the necessary concessions, especially where one side is not legally required to make such concessions.
