Partnership contracts and handling disputes

Whether in Colorado or elsewhere, starting a business venture with someone else or bringing a partner on board after the fact can have advantages and disadvantages. Partnerships, in some ways, can ease some of the burdens of trying to own and operate a business by oneself. A lot goes into creating successful partnerships, and goals and expectations should be included in legal contracts in order to keep all parties protected.

Generally speaking, there are three different types of partnerships -- limited, joint and general. Those who enter general or joint ventures essentially agree to split responsibilities, losses and profits. A limited partnership, on the other hand, usually involves a relationship between a business owner and investor. The investor is not likely to get involved in day-to-day operations.

Having the necessary legal contracts in place, regardless of which type of partnership is entered, will be a great help if disputes arise. Unfortunately, disagreements between partners do happen. Not all will lead to legal actions, but litigation is possible. As such, having partnership agreements that spell out each partners' roles and responsibilities, along with approved dispute resolutions is a must.

If proper legal protections are not put in place from the very beginning, it is possible that not much can be done if one partner fails to fulfill his or her roles and responsibilities. An experienced employment and business law attorney can assist Colorado business owners with creating partnership contracts and seeking alternative forms of dispute resolution when needed. Representation can also be provided in court should those alternative forms fail and litigation becomes necessary.
