Arts Law strongly recommends using partnership deeds as soon as possible when forming a partnership as it is much easier to lay down ground rules for working together while you are getting along and before any money is at stake. This will also make your life much simpler (and cheaper!) if, somewhere down the track, a dispute arises between performers. A written deed will give you a much clearer understanding of each performer?s rights and obligations and will also provide you with a framework for making decisions as a partnership. This is a?deed for a group of performers who want to form a partnership for the purpose of putting on more than one show/project/performance on an ongoing basis.
