Properly establish your business.

A Co-Founders’ Agreement clearly establishes the rights and responsibilities of the founders of a company. Generally, Co-Founders’ Agreements include capital contributions, special equity compensation, how shares are vested, when and how shares are sold or transferred, and if a founder leaves.

Why book a Co-Founders' Agreement?

Organize shares and ownership.

Clearly articulate who owns the company and how much ownership each person has.

Avoid conflict.

Developing a Co-Founders’ Agreement will inspire constructive conversations between founders and set the company up for long term success. Effective Agreements can prevent a business from imploding due to a simple difference of opinion.

Prepare for the unexpected.

What happens if a key contributor gets sick, or leaves the company unexpectedly? A well-written Co-Founders’ Agreement will establish the procedure for these situations and ensure the company continues to operate.

What's covered in a Co-Founders' Agreement?

First you'll have a kick-off call with your Good Lawyer to discuss the current status of corporation. After the call, your lawyer will collect the documents they need to complete the Agreement. They will share a copy of the final document.

You might have to negotiate with your Co-Founders on the agreement. The first instance of the agreement is often not the final document, especially if other founders are exercising their right to seek independent legal advice.
