You are venturing into a business partnership with your best friend, your spouse, or your cousin. If you think you are safe from all the business conflicts that arise in most start up ventures because you know your partner very well, think again. Most conflicts and legal contests are because of this ignorant belief. You have to protect not only yourself but also your partner. Hence it is best for you to draw up a partnership agreement template before you decide to commit yourself.
Division of Assets_ In the event that a partner or both partners wants to dissolve the business, there should be a clear solution in the partnership agreement template as to how the assets should be divided and how much will go to each partner. Since this will mainly involve financial issues, it is best to set things clearly as this will cause great havoc if not settled.
