Partnership Agreements that support your business goals
A partnership can be an effective way of running a small to medium sized business. A business partnership without a formal partnership agreement is governed by the Partnership Act 1890 which, due to its age, does not always cater well for modern business practices. Putting a partnership agreement in place allows the partners more control over ownership, liability and finances.
Partnership agreements help to protect the partners and to establish rules that govern the relationship between them. The corporate team at Fraser Dawbarns have extensive experience in drafting partnership agreements and can help you to put an arrangement in place that will protect your investment. Contact Fraser Dawbarns today to see how we can help you.
Our commercial team are also rated as a ‘Leading Firm’ in the 2020 Legal 500 for our corporate and commercial work.
While everything is going well, you may not feel that a formal agreement is important, but when problems arise, it can potentially be problematic and costly. Having a formalised partnership agreement can protect the partners against litigation, bankruptcy and disagreements.
Contact the Corporate Law team at Fraser Dawbarns for help with creating a partnership agreement that will best serve the interests of the partners and the business.
Limited Liability Partnership Agreements
A limited liability partnership (LLP), despite its name, has a lot in common with a limited company in that it has a legal existence that is separate from its members who are not financially liable for more than they have invested in the company. LLPs have a tax and ownership structure that is more like a partnership. The LLP model is well suited to professional businesses such as solicitors and accountants.
As with partnerships and limited companies, having a limited liability partnership agreement can help to outline how the LLP will work on a day-to-day basis, covering how profits will be shared, how the partnership will be managed and how members can be added and removed as well as many other aspects of running the business. An agreement will also help to prevent conflict if any problems arise.
Contact the Corporate Law team at Fraser Dawbarns who can advise you on all aspects of creating a limited liability partnership agreement that will best serve the interests of the partners and the business.
