Business Partnership Agreement

Texas

Asked on Sep 26, 2023

Business partnership agreement for short projects?

I am looking to start a business partnership with another individual. We are both interested in working together on short-term projects, but we want to ensure that our partnership is legally binding and properly structured to protect both of our interests. We have discussed the details of our agreement, but I would like to have a lawyer review the agreement to ensure that it is legally sound.

Jimmy V.

Answered Oct 10, 2023

In a partnership, each of you is liable for all debts of the partnership. Your personal assets are at risk if anything goes wrong. You should set up as a limited liability company. That way, only the LLC can be liable, and you will not be personally liable. To se up an LLC, you need a filing with the state, an Operating Agreement, and an Employer Identification Number from the IRS. The Operation Agreement is, in effect, a partnership agreement. I offer flat fee packages for these services. Thx. JV

Terms of Service

Texas

Asked on Dec 13, 2023

How to include confidentiality in terms of service?

I recently started a business and need to include terms of service for my customers. I want to ensure that all customer data is kept confidential and secure, and am looking for advice on how to include this in the terms of service. I understand the importance of having a well-drafted terms of service to protect my business, and I want to make sure that the terms of service include confidentiality provisions.

J.R. S.

Answered Jan 26, 2024

Congratulations on your new business. I am happy to see you are taking the steps to protect your customers, as well as your business. Here is a general list of things for you to consider as a Texas entity: 1. Clear Definition of Confidential Information: This can include customer files, lists, business, marketing, financial or sales record, data, electronic data, program, plan, survey, and any other record or information relating to the present or future business, products, or services. It can also include customer and patient related information that could damage the company if this information were to come into the possession of competitors. 2. Confidentiality Conditions: The terms of service should detail the conditions under which information qualifies as confidential. For instance, the information could be considered confidential if it's disclosed to the recipient, either directly or indirectly, including the identity of customers, consultants, and suppliers. 3. Regulations for Public Access: The terms of service should include regulations to ensure non-discriminatory public access while complying with confidentiality and disclosure protections. 4. Non-Disclosure of Customer Information: The terms of service should state that customers' identities should not be disclosed, even if the trade secret being protected is a customer list. 5. Return of Confidential Information: The terms of service should state that upon termination of the agreement, the recipient is required to return all confidential information. Depending on what your company does, and the type of information that is collected on your customers, there may be more necessary legal disclosures. You can contact me for more details or to set up a private consultation to evaluate your legal disclosures necessary for your industry.

Joint Venture Agreement

Texas

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

What's normal term in a joint venture?

I am currently in discussions with another company to form a joint venture to pursue a business opportunity. As part of our negotiations, we are trying to determine the appropriate term for the joint venture, including the duration of the joint venture and the conditions under which it can be extended or terminated. However, I am unclear on what is considered a normal or typical term for a joint venture, and what factors should be considered when determining the length of the venture. Therefore, I would like to seek the advice of a lawyer to guide me through the process of negotiating the term of the joint venture and to ensure that the terms are legally sound and meet my needs.

Answered Mar 21, 2023

A joint venture is a partnership organized for a specific purpose. Let's say that you formed a joint venture to renovate a house and sell it. The joint venture ends once the project is completed. In this case the joint venture would end when you sold the house, PS For more information about business entities, download a free copy of my ebook "Should Your Small Business Become a Corporation or an LLC?

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.
