I Have Partners or Co-Owners...
When a business has more than one owner, you need an agreement, in writing. What happens if one owner gets divorced? Or becomes disabled? Or simply wants to retire? While things are beginning or going well, and relationships are stable that is the time to draft an operating agreement. Avoid costly litigation or being forced to account to your partner’s ex-spouse or figure out how to compensate a retiring or disabled co-owner. Decide how to leave your business to your children.
