What do I need two people to sign that I introduced that keeps me safe, where they cant go around me and work together?

New York, NY |

one person has certain domain names that a web developer wants to build sites on them. I introduced the two and we want to create a partnership between all three partners to make sites on those specific domain names and we will be getting 1/3 each of all the profits.One person is contributing the domain names.The other person is developing the websites. And i just introduced the two.I am scared that down the line they are going to tell me i dont deserve a 1/3 for just introducing them. What do i say in the partnership that they are not allowed to go around me?

Have an attorney reduce your agreement to a written partnership agreement signed by all three parties.

I agree with my colleague. This comes down to a private contract between you and the other parties involved. How you engage in this depends. It can be a proper Joint Venture where a new entity is created or more of a Strategic Alliance where the parties merely enter into an agreement and share in revenues from the venture each contributing value.

It might make sense to discuss with a lawyer in private . Most of us here, including myself, offer a free phone consult and I too am in NYC.
