I own a C-corp (just converted from an LLC).  My business partner and I at the time decided to split 1/3 (me) - 2/3(me) based on the amount of money we put in.

A year and a half later, my partner found several key investors who also brought in a couple people to invest and now he wants more equity.

He wants to even us out claiming he brought in all of the investor money and he's worth more equity. How do I deal with this? What are my options? He's obviously not happy and wants more equity - what is the right move?  Is it common for founders to renegotiate their equity positions?
