Partnership Agreement

Get your Partnership Agreement prepared by OpenLegal's lawyers

A Partnership Agreement is made between two or more parties entering into business together in the form of a partnership. The agreement will define how the partnership will actually operate. 

Frequently ‘partnerships’ emerge organically between individuals fleshing out a business venture they wish to create together. In which case, what is agreed verbally does have legal standing, but should be formalised into a written contract. Having the obligations, expectations and rights in a written document will help prevent disputes that may emerge downstream.

A Partnership Agreement will typically cover the following areas:

  • Financial Contributions
    The financial contribution each partner will make
  • Profits and Losses
    The manner profits and losses will be managed by the partnership
  • Obligations
    The obligations due to each partner
  • Rights
    The rights due to each partner
  • Dispute Resolution
    In the event of conflict, a mechanism for resolving disputes should be defined
  • Term
    The length of time the Agreement is to last for
  • Exit
    The way a departure by one of the partners will be managed
  • Other Agreements
    Whether other agreements can be entered into by one of the partners that bind the partnership

We recently engaged OpenLegal. The team were extremely friendly and energetic, took the time to understand my business, were responsive, and overall it was a very smooth speedy process. Would recommend OpenLegal to those businesses seeking cost-effective quick expert advice from a team of personable skilled lawyers.
