Can I sue if a business partner takes ideas from a business that we both created and implements it into their own business while scrapping ours?

Question Details: Started a business idea and took it to local investors/business owners. We split my idea equally. I spent hundreds of hours on the idea and created the foundation. They want to cancel the business as a brand and just implement all the ideas and assets to their business they had previously. This entails them making me an employee for them under their business and losing all percentages I owned of the brand I created. Now I own zero percent and they are still using all my assets. If they end up firing me for pressuring the issue, can I sue?
