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.

This course 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.

Key course points are:
• Learn due diligence techniques to identify potential problems before they arise.
• Recognize the different forms a new partnership can take.
• Identify the major entrepreneurial “archetypes,” and what type of partnership fits each best.
• Understand the most crucial aspects of a partnership agreement.
• Protect your client if something goes wrong in the partnership.
