Re: Company's money for personal use

If the draws are not allowed by the partnership agreement or corporation operating agreement, then yes, you can do something about it. You could ask for an injunction to stop further transfers and ask for an accounting. Depending on how badly the relationship has deteriorated, you might also want to dissolve the corporation and take out your contribution (or remaining %). This process can be messy, time consuming, and expensive.

Thank you for your question. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Best regards,
