Understanding Partnerships vs. Joint Ventures

Confusion often arises over whether a business relationship constitutes a partnership or a joint venture. Typically, a joint venture is formed for a specific purpose. Whereas, a partnership is an ongoing relationship. Importantly, in a partnership, partners are jointly liable for the business’s debts if it fails.

The Importance of Written Agreements

Neither a partnership nor a joint venture agreement needs to be in writing to exist. However, it is highly recommended to have a written agreement to avoid disputes. It is because a well-documented agreement can address key areas such as:

  • Expectations: Clearly defining the role and contributions of each party.
  • Capital Contributions: Outlining the financial investment expected from each party.
  • Financial Management: Establishing how the venture will be managed financially.
  • Decision Making: Creating a process to make decisions and avoid deadlocks.
  • Competition: Setting limits on the parties’ ability to compete against the venture.
  • Termination: Planning for the end of the arrangement and how to handle it.
  • Inability to Contribute: Determining what happens if one party cannot fulfill their obligations.

Preventing and Resolving Disputes

Due to the potential for disputes and fading recollections over time, it is best to document agreements from the beginning. Our business lawyers can provide valuable advice on the rights and obligations within these arrangements. Plus, we suggest strategies to overcome potential challenges.
