How can a lawyer help me?
Legal assistance is crucial when drawing up an Investment Agreement as strong and serious economic consequences derive from it.
At Lexidy LegalTech Boutique, our corporate lawyers will assist you with drafting an agreement that is suitable for your case and complies with Spanish corporate regulations.
We will also assist you in understanding the risks and benefits of any agreement proposal you may receive from a third party, as well as in negotiating the clauses that will protect your interests.
Unexpected changes can have an impact on a business. If there are successive funding rounds, one of the most common risks that an investor assumes is being diluted, both politically and economically. Lexidy will provide you with the necessary legal information so that you are aware of your rights as a shareholder and have the tools to avoid dilution.
Finally, a diligent lawyer will assist you in enforcing your rights if one of the parties fails to meet its obligations. This is more common than many people believe.

What is an Investment Agreement?
An Investment Agreement is a legal agreement between two parties in which one agrees to invest a certain amount of money in a business. In most cases, they become a partner in the company and receive a financial return.
There are various types of Investment Agreements, but they should all have the following points:
- A financial investment.
- Be assigned to a joint project/venture of the parties.
- They should imply a profit expectation for the investor.
- Profit should be gained through the efforts of others.
How can an Investment agreement help my startup?
Having enough cash flow and economic resources can be difficult for a young company.
Obtaining liquidity from an investor requires far fewer formalities than applying for a traditional loan from a financial institution, and it may come with additional benefits such as guidance, industry expertise, and networking.
What are the requirements?
The law does not require a specific template or requirements. However, the following information should be included in the structure of any agreement:
- Who are the parties?
- The investment’s purpose.
- The investment plan.
- Obligations of each party
- Clauses of confidentiality or non-disclosure.
- The investment’s maturity date.
- Economic rewards are triggered by well-defined milestones.
- Signatures of all parties
