Partnerships and joint ventures are often loosely defined

Partnership and joint ventures are two other ways for separate people or businesses to create a new business, particularly when they enter into temporary or informal arrangements, or want to save on costs. 


However, without proper ground-rules in place, it can be difficult for parties to have the correct structure in place to properly run the new business, especially as a business expands and personal circumstances change. Most people underestimate the potential for disputes with their business partners over the course of running a business.


Unforeseen circumstances can derail the business

Common issues which come up during a business’ lifetime include:

  • Disagreements on decision making;
  • Disagreements on exact roles, funding requirements and what constitutes underperformance;
  • Bringing in new partners, or existing partners retiring; and
  • Dissolving the partnership and what happens to assets (such as IP) afterwards.

Such disputes between business partners can cause the business to grind to a halt and erode any profits or chance of future growth.


Formalise your terms with a tailored agreement

Having a clear and tailored agreement is therefore pivotal to solidify the terms of the partnership and set rules in place early. It will determine many issues such as how you make decisions, how disputes are resolved, what processes are available if a partner wants to exit the business, and how the business is closed. At the very least, it will ensure you have a good exit strategy in case the business or the relationship fails.


Having these clear rules put in place beforehand ensures everyone is on the same page, and accordingly minimises the chance of disputes occurring or business partners falling out. Our lawyers can draft and review agreements that align effectively with the terms you and your partners agree to.

Frequently asked questions

Can I do this myself?
The simple answer is yes - you could register your company yourself through the Australian Government’s Business Registration Service (BRS) or through a number of online providers if you wish. The true answer is that doing this is risky and not advised; even the most seasoned and experienced operators will often be unclear of the best structure required to suit their company’s strategy moving ahead. Realistically, for all startups, it is absolute best-practice to seek legal advice to tailor your company set-up to your needs.
Are your documents automatically generated?
No, all of our documents are drafted by human lawyers after careful consideration of your personal circumstances. We are a law firm offering bespoke legal documents and advice, not an automatic document generation service. This means we are liable if something goes wrong (unlike automatic providers).
Is the price a fixed-fee?
Yes. However, the fixed fee covers the initial draft and one round of amendments, based on your initial instructions. After that, if you still want further amendments or changes to the scope, we charge in accordance with our Fixed Fee Terms.
Can I speak or meet with a lawyer, and will this cost extra?
Of course! Our quoted price includes reasonable access to our lawyers by phone, email, or meeting, in accordance with our Fixed Fee Terms.
What if I need this urgently?
We pride ourselves on fast turnarounds. If this matter is urgent, please let us know and we will try our best to deliver it within an acceptable timeframe.
This package doesn’t suit me, can I create my own one?
Certainly! Please speak to our lawyers by phone or email and we will endeavour to create a package which specifically suits your needs. Click here to schedule your free consultation.
