Suppose two partners form an investment advisor. One brings capital from personal high net worth connections. The other programs a systematic investment strategy. The partner bringing the capital is majority owner and has control. After several years, the partner with connections learns the strategy and can run it on his own. He decides to disolve the parnership and run the strategy (perhaps inconsequentially modified) on his own for the same investors, inside a newly formed advisor. Does the minority partner left out have any recourse to this? A very good (i.e. expensive) lawyer could come up with some precedents and figure this out, but I am curious to see what traders think about it.
