Contracts Legal Questions and Answers

Contracts

Business Partnership Agreement

Tennessee

Asked on May 11, 2022

Zied kefi partnership

I wanna open restaurant with my friend and make legal partnership documents

Rebecca R.

Answered May 13, 2022

You have the right idea to put the partnership in writing. Your attorney will be able to help you think through several issues: investment into the business, operating the business, the potential to add more partners or investors, and an exit strategy for each partner or both partners. The document to start with is a business partnership agreement that outlines the ground rules for your partnership based on the Tennessee law. It can be a very straightforward document, or more complex depending on your needs. For instance, you may also want to create a statement of partnership authority which designates which partners have the authority to enter into agreements on behalf of the partnership, or it may limit the authority of certain partners. This is the kind of business agreement I help small business owners with regularly, and I invite you to request a bid for my services on your project through ContractsCounsel.

Startup

Equity Agreement

Pennsylvania

Asked on Jan 13, 2022

How much equity should investors get?

Hi there, I'm seeking counsel for a startup/small business with two initial investors. These investors have established auto repair businesses and will use those businesses as leverage to support a $500k loan that will be used to initially fund the business. Revenues from those businesses will be used to pay the loan until the business can pay for them. I will be providing all sweat equity. The investors above will have no involvement in the day-to-day (as they run their own businesses). One investor may provide connections to potential clients and if necessary, an additional investor.

Ryan W.

Answered Jan 14, 2022

The answer as to how much equity to give an investor depends upon a variety of factors. One way to look at the situation is to try to place a value on your business. Once you have determined an appropriate value for your business, then determine how much money an investor is providing the business. From here you could figure out the percentage of equity based upon the investment and value of the business.

Contracts

Independent Contractor Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Nov 13, 2023

What are common pitfalls in contractor agreements?

I am a small business owner looking to hire an independent contractor to help with some of my workload. I am concerned about entering into an agreement with the contractor and would like to know more about common pitfalls in contractor agreements so that I can ensure I am entering into a fair and equitable arrangement.

Peter R.

Answered Nov 14, 2023

There are several potential pitfalls that can be mitigated or removed by addressing them in the contract. These include: whether the contract calls itself an independent contractor agreement but yet fails the test for an independent contractor and therefore brings in matters such as workers compensation coverage (depending on number of employees), liability for contractors acts or omissions, unemployment tax, tax withholding v 1099 and several others. These can be eliminated via proper drafting.
