Different business structures for different types of business

A Partnership Agreement is required when you are trading as individuals and a Shareholder Agreement when you are trading through a limited company. The hybrid model of an LLP is common in professional services and requires a Members Agreement. A Shareholder’s Agreement or a Partnership Agreement is an important document to have within your business and is considered a cost-effective way of reducing the risk of any issues arising. It sets out terms that detail how various matters will be dealt with, providing a forum for dispute resolution should an issue arise down the road.

Our partner led team can help you prepare the right agreement for your situation and business which avoids the uncertainty of default provisions applying and which details the rights and obligations each partner has to the business; structures the relationship in a way to suit the business; and sets out how the business is to be run. They also provide a clear process on how to deal with new and exiting partners and with disputes amongst the partners
