Why Your Business Needs a Partnership Agreement, Shareholder Contract Agreement or By-Laws

Having a partnership agreement, operating agreement or shareholder contract agreement (commonly called “corporate by-laws”) drafted by one of our business lawyers can set guidelines for how to proceed with everyday business. One of these contract agreements can also:

  • Legally define what your business entails
  • Set parameters for how long the company will be in business
  • Provide enforceable rules for owners leaving the business
  • Provide for parameters on sale of interests in the business
  • Set legally-binding guidelines for what happens after an owner dies, or gets divorced

Having these binding agreements at the inception of your business will not only allow roles within the company to be clearly defined, it will also guide how any future disputes will be handled. Particularly, having an agreement can save money in the event of a Business Break-Up. Save your time and money by having an enforceable partnership agreement, operating agreement or shareholder agreement put into place with the help of a business lawyer from Business Law Southwest, LLC.
