Partnerships are the backbone of success in the start-up world. They allow an entrepreneur with a strong concept to obtain the skills they require to realize it, and to increase their chances of profitability and growth. Choosing the perfect partner is your client’s job; it’s your job to protect your client. In this course, attorney Todd Kulkin provides a top-to-bottom understanding of partnerships and how to counsel partners through formation, the (hopeful) ascension of their business, and (hopefully not) their collapse.
I. Learn due diligence techniques to identify potential problems before they arise
II. Recognize the different forms a new partnership can take
III. Identify the major entrepreneurial “archetypes,” and what type of partnership fits each best
IV. Understand the most crucial aspects of a partnership agreement
V. Protect your client if something goes wrong in the partnership
VI. Appreciate the ways in which a partnership can fail and advise your client how to both prepare for and avoid such failures
