Partnership Agreement

California

Asked on Oct 6, 2022

How to dissolve a partnership agreement?

I want to get out of a partnership we have with another business where we are sharing profits from products we're selling. It isn't working out and the other party isn't living up to their obligations based on what we initially discuss.

Michael M.

Answered Oct 7, 2022

Usually, partnership agreements have a termination provision which addresses when and how the partnership can be terminated. Typically, termination occurs upon the vote of the partners or upon the occurrence of an event or number of years.

Stock Purchase Agreement

California

Asked on Jun 4, 2023

Stock purchase agreement legal requirements?

I am looking to purchase stock in a company and I want to ensure that I am legally protected. I am looking to enter into a Stock Purchase Agreement with the company, and I want to make sure that all legal requirements are met before I sign the agreement. I am looking for advice on what legal requirements need to be met in order for the Stock Purchase Agreement to be legally binding.

Russell M.

Answered Jun 20, 2023

It's important to note that this is not an exhaustive list, and specific considerations may vary depending on the circumstances. Consulting with a qualified attorney is crucial to tailor the agreement to your specific needs. Here are some key areas to focus on: 1. Stock Description: Clearly define the shares being purchased, including the class of stock, number of shares, and any special rights or restrictions associated with the shares. You absolutely want to see the full record of the articles of incorporation, bylaws and any possibly existing shareholder agreements that could modify your rights in any way. 2. Purchase Price and Payment Terms: Specify the agreed-upon purchase price, payment structure (e.g., lump sum or installment), and any contingencies or adjustments based on audited financial statements or other factors. 3. The stock sale transaction is approved by the Board of Directors and possibly the Shareholders. You should be able to see the corporate action, either as a Written Consent or a Resolution taken by vote and certified by the corporate Secretary, who is the officer responsible for recording the minutes. 4. Representations and Warranties: Require the seller to make certain representations and warranties regarding the company's financial condition, assets, liabilities, contracts, intellectual property, compliance with laws, and any pending litigation. 5. Conditions Precedent: Specify the conditions that must be met before the transaction can be completed, such as obtaining necessary regulatory approvals, consents, or waivers. 6. Due Diligence: You should conduct thorough due diligence on the company, its financial records, contracts, intellectual property, and any other relevant aspects to identify any potential issues or risks. Generally, an acknowledgement of your access to, and conduct of, due diligence is good to include in the agreement. 7. Proper completion of any securities filing. Particularly if you are not the only investor, past present, or future, you should expect and require the company to be compliant with securities rules. Failure to observe the securities rules is red flag. 8. Governing Law and Jurisdiction: Determine the governing law and jurisdiction that will apply to the interpretation and enforcement of the agreement. Remember also that if you are investing in a corporation that is incorporated in a state other than where you reside, that state corporation law will generally govern your shareholder rights.

Employment Contract

California

Asked on Oct 4, 2022

What is fixed term employment contract?

I have been given a contract that says 'Fixed Term Employment Contract'. How is this different than a normal employment contract? Is there anything I need to consider before signing this?

Christopher M.

Answered Oct 7, 2022

Generally a fix term employment contract differs from a genera employment contract in that it has an end date. For example, at-will contracts continue until you are fired or quit, while a fixed term contract only continues until the term expires. The main points to look at would be what they are classifying you as (employee vs contractor), the length of the term (so you know when the contract is up), and how to renew the contract or if there is an automatic renewal. It would also be good to double check the contract for termination clauses, as quitting may be more complicated under a fixed term contract. Ultimately, as with all contract matters it’s probably best to reach out to an attorney to review the document to get more specific answers to your concerns.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
