My question involves business law in the state of: Arizona
I have a small construction business, I have a business partner that came on board about a year ago and was supposed to bring his expertise in his field to help grow the business. Since it was a small business I had been running on my own I did not familiarize myself with an operating agreement until he came on board. Now that I have been searching through operating agreements I notice that ours has nothing to do with what should be put on an agreement, all we have on it is he is coming in as a 49% partner and nothing about day to day responsibilities or what he is supposed to bring into the company. We are an LLC and he is not listed on the Articles of incorporation. everything beside the operating agreement shows me as owner operator.
So thats the run down, my question is how can I remove him from the business? I have a list of things that show he is not bringing to the table what we verbally agreed and has actually caused us to lose an account that I had set up before he came on board. Since he is not listed on the Articles does that take precedence over the vague operating agreement he wrote?
