Joint Venture Agreement

Florida

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

How to split debt in a joint venture?

I am currently in a joint venture with another company to pursue a business opportunity. As part of our venture, we have incurred debt that we need to repay. However, I am unsure of how to fairly split the debt between the two companies, especially if one company has contributed more resources or expertise to the venture than the other. Therefore, I would like to seek the advice of a lawyer to better understand the legal and financial considerations involved in splitting debt in a joint venture.

Donya G.

Answered Mar 28, 2023

This can be done by agreement of the parties. Typically it can be done in the same way profits are split or depending on how much the parties are contributing to the JV. If you need assistance with the JV agreement, I can help. You can find me on the contracts counsel website to engage my services. All the best Donya Gordon

Contractor Agreement

Florida

Asked on Oct 20, 2023

How to amend a contractor agreement?

I am a small business owner who recently signed a contractor agreement with an independent contractor. After signing, I realized I need to make a few changes to the agreement due to changes in the scope of work. I need to know how to amend the agreement so that the changes can be legally binding.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 27, 2023

Amending a contract, including an independent contractor agreement, usually takes three main steps: First, to amend a contract, the parties must usually agree to new terms. This sometimes requires the parties to negotiate. Second, when the parties to an agreement memorialize it in a written contract, they typically must also sign a written document to amend it. This means that they will need to draft an amendment that accurately reflects the proposed amendment(s). Third, once the parties have drafted an amendment that they are comfortable with, each will sign and will usually receive a signed copy of the fully executed contract amendment. However, note that amending some contracts can be much more complex. For assistance with negotiating or drafting a contract amendment, including for an independent contractor agreement, you should contact a knowledgeable attorney practicing in the appropriate jurisdiction.

LLC Operating Agreement

Florida

Asked on Apr 20, 2023

What should be included in my LLC operating agreement?

I recently formed an LLC with two other partners and we are in the process of finalizing our operating agreement. I am looking for advice on what should be included in the agreement in order to ensure the legal and financial protection of all partners involved. I understand the importance of having a comprehensive agreement in place, and would like to ensure that all of our interests are properly represented.

Fabian G.

Answered May 26, 2023

Hello, My name is Fabian Garcia and I am a Florida-licensed attorney. What follows is a brief overview of certain important considerations when drafting an Operating Agreement: There are several items that need to be considered when drafting an Operating Agreement. First, you will need to determine whether your company will be manager-managed or member-managed. This is important because it will lay the foundation as to which individuals/entities will have the ability to control the company. Proper definitions should be used throughout the entire Operating Agreement to make sure that there are no ambiguities. Capital contributions are generally attached as an exhibit to the Operating Agreement, and describe the amounts that each member has contributed. Note that capital contributions can also be in the form of sweat equity. You will also want to make sure and address whether additional capital contributions will be required. Another item that must be touched on the Operating Agreement is membership. How will new members be admitted? Will a vote be required? Note that typically, members are not liable for the company's obligations by merely being members. There should be language addressing that as well. You will also want to make sure that there is a mechanism as to how members may dissociate from the company and whether the remaining members will have any buy-out rights. Next, the Operating Agreement should clearly address how profits and losses will be allocated. This goes hand in hand with how distributions will be made to the members, if any. Typically, if it is a manager-managed company, the manager will determine when the distributions must be made. All of the items which need to be voted on, along with the required voting percentages, need to be included in the Operating Agreement. The Operating Agreement should address whether the members will be able to transfer their membership interests in the company. Some third-parties may be considered permitted transferees. Additionally, the Operating Agreement should generally state that it will indemnify the members in the event of a lawsuit, under certain circumstances. Lastly, the Operating Agreement should always have a dispute resolution mechanism, indicating how disputes are to be handled. I routinely assist business owners by drafting Operating Agreements, along with other complex legal documents. Please let me know if I can ever be of assistance. Thank you.

Business Contracts

Employment Agreement

Florida

Asked on Oct 28, 2022

Can a company keep an independent contractor's equipment and supplies after mutually severing ties?

I'm an independent contractor and have mutually severed ties with the owner of the company I contracted with. She said I could retrieve my belongings this past Tuesday at 2pm. Before I could do so she asked for more time to gather my items and have them ready for pick up in the front lobby. I asked why I couldn't just come get the stuff I could be done w/in an hour and she replied she had some accounting to do. Yesterday Thursday I said I wanted to come get my stuff Friday as I've given her plenty of time. She said I could pick up today at 3:15 as long as I pay her $180 that she claims I owe. First I've heard of this charge and completely dispute it. Now she is saying she is keeping my stuff in lieu of payment. I spoke with county sheriff's office who will provide an escort to retrieve my things. It's work related and her keeping the items is preventing me from working. Does she have any right to withhold my property? Just to be clear I'm not an employee.

Donya G.

Answered Nov 1, 2022

This depends on what was agreed to by the parties in the contract. If the contract is silent, did the parties have an understanding as to what would happen? It would be beneficial to have your agreement reviewed by an attorney and advise you on next steps. I can assist you with that review and advise. You can connect with me through the website.
