Partnership Agreements

A partnership is a business venture whereby the business is run by a number of joint owners. The owners (or partners) of the partnership have responsibility for running the business between them and decisions, profits, losses, and liabilities are all shared amongst them. A partnership is automatically formed when more than two people decide to work together for the benefit of making money. Therefore it is vital that the relationship between the partners, their responsibilities, their profit sharing, and their obligations are all properly recorded. This is done through a Partnership Agreement, We at Legal Matters have a great deal of experience preparing bespoke partnership agreements for newly-started or existing businesses, as well as advising on already-existing Agreements.

Mergers

Successful mergers are based upon a deep understanding of industry dynamics, the nature of the merging entities and well thought-out integration plans.

  • Review of contracts that could be affected by the merger.
  • Drafting of documentation for the formalization and execution of the transaction.

Director’s Duties

Whilst statutory Company law does set out a list of directors duties, companies and directors are well advised to clarify expectations via a director service contract and, where a director is also a shareholder via a shareholder agreement.

Restrictions on what directors are legally entitled to do can also be included in the company’s articles of association. Notwithstanding all these protections, practical protections and communication and information are also important to avoid problems or breaches of director duties.
