Attorney advice is critical in the formation stage of a partnership. There are a multitude of legal options and disputes are likely to take place. The two most common partnerships are general and limited partnerships.
A general partnership typically is made up of two or more people, each of which are equally personally responsible for the liabilities of the company. Each partner is responsible for the business decisions of the other partner(s). All partners can act on behalf of the partnership.
A limited partnership has one or more general partners. Although each partner has equal and full liability, they have limited liabilities. The partners do not control the partnership operations. Taxes pass through this type of partnership. The profits of a limited partnership are only subject to taxation once.
