My business has been selling as a reseller partner to a software company. Due to my companies success I have been contacted by the owner directly in attempts to partner with his company as he also feels my services can benefit his. Thus why not join forces sort of speak. This is the first time I have been approach in this type of manner. We are currently in the process of brainstorming ideas and agreements type phase to get an overview before we put on paper and make it final and legal. My first thought is to find out if his company has any debt and how much etc as I do not want to be accountable for such etc. You get the point. I need help from someone avid in negotiations of partnerships and contracts and what to ask and look for that I may not be seeing or thinking of myself. Basic guidlines of the process etc. I want to avoid over looking something basically. If there is anyone who is keen with this sort of thing please bid so we may talk further. There may be a long term need for your services after this such deal as my personal companies lawyer as currently I do not have a designated one currently.
