Business Partnership Agreements

For many businesspeople, taking an idea and making it into a viable business is a lifelong dream, but it can be a challenging process.  This is especially true when individuals are forming a business together.  The agreement governing your business partnership is vital to determining your chances for long-term business success.

At Firestone Law, we are focused on representing clients in negotiating and drafting shareholder, partnership and operating agreements, with the goal of identifying and neutralizing potential litigation issues and disputes before they ever become an issue and establishing “rules of the road” that reduce friction and increase predictability in the partners’ business relationship. We use our extensive experience resolving and litigating business disputes to help entrepreneurs start their business partnerships with comprehensive and reliable partnership agreements that allow them to avoid costly litigation in the future.

Among our clients, we have represented:

  • A construction management company in connection with a shareholder agreement among the founder and his successors
  • An internationally known chef in the negotiation of an operating agreement for a new restaurant business venture
  • Parties in the formation of a real estate investment company
