Partnership Agreements

If you are in business and work in partnership you should always ensure that you have a properly drafted written partnership agreement in place. If you do not have a formal written agreement in place you are reliant on statute and this can often be vague and may not adequately cover the areas you would want it to.

    A properly written partnership agreement can help avoid disputes between you and your fellow partners and will clearly spell out each partners roles, responsibilities and what is expected of them. If you are considering entering into partnership and wish to have a written agreement drawn up, these are some of the major issues you will need to consider:

    • Name of the partnership
    • Contributions to the partnership
    • Allocation of profits, losses and drawings
    • Partners authority
    • Partnership decision making (unanimity, majority vote etc)
    • Management duties
    • Admitting new partners
    • Withdrawal or death of a partner
    • Dispute resolution

    These are just some of the main issues that you will need to consider and we would be happy to discuss these further with you and guide you through the process from start to finish. If you would like further information you can email George Mushahwar or call him on 01695 574 201.
