I want to break up my business relationship with the other 50%. I want to open another company and take my clients with me

That's a tough situation, and there are too many potential variables to account for here to provide a concise answer. There will be inherent risks in breaking away from a company, especially when clients might also be taken from the original company. For advice on this matter, it might be wise to reach out to a local business attorney (note: not the business' attorney) in your individual capacity (rather than as a representative of your current company). They will be able to survey all of the circumstances surrounding your situation, as well as review relevant documentation, then provide advice on how to move forward. Further, because this is a sensitive matter, consulting an attorney in your own capacity will help keep the matter confidential until a course of action is chosen.
