Make Sure You Consult an Attorney Before Joining or Leaving a Partnership.

If you’re looking for more capital to get your dream business started or are already working with your best friend on a handmade project that has just become lucrative, then it’s time you looked at creating a formal partnership.

General partnerships can be quite informal business relationships, and you actually don’t even need anything in writing to form a partnership. The key factors that make up a partnership are two or more people carrying on as co-owners and sharing profits. Even if a ‘partnership’ wasn’t your intention, if this is what is happening your relationship will be deemed a partnership and all partners will be liable for the obligations of a partnership.

And, although, there is no requirement for a written partnership agreement, it’s an excellent idea to have one. It will prevent any possible disagreements about profit or vision and instead give your partnership a solid direction and focus.
