Partnership Agreement with Investors in Spain

Protect your interest when partnering for investment


Our corporate lawyers will guide you through the process step-by-step.

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 help you understand the risks and benefits of any agreement proposal you may receive from a third party and help you negotiate the clauses to protect your interests.

A business can be affected by unexpected changes. One of the most common risks that an investor assumes is being diluted, both in political and economic aspects, if there are successive funding rounds. At Lexidy we will provide you with the necessary legal information so you are aware of your rights as a shareholder and have the tools to prevent dilution occuring.

Finally, a diligent lawyer will help enforce your if one of the parties does not comply with its obligations. This is more common than many think.

¨We will be with you each step of the journey.¨


What is an Investment Agreement?

An Investment Agreement is a legal contract between two parties where one of them agrees to place a certain amount of money in a business. Generally, they become a partner in the company and receive an economic return.

There are several types of Investment Agreement, however they should all share the following traits:

  • An investment of money.
  • Be placed in a common project/venture of the parties.
  • They should imply an expectation of profit for the investor. 
  • The profit should be obtained from the effort of others.

How can an Investment agreement help my startup?

Generating enough cash-flow and having enough economic resources can be challenging for a young company.

Getting a liquidity boost from an investor has far fewer formalities than applying for a traditional loan from a financial institution and it can come with other perks, such as guidance, industry expertise and networking.

What are the requirements?

The law does not require a specific template as this is an area where creativity can be exercised.

However, the structure of any agreement should contain the following content: 

  • Who the parties are.
  • The purpose of the investment.
  • The investment scheme.
  • Each parties’ obligations.
  • Confidentiality or non-disclosure clauses.
  • Maturity date of the investment.
  • Well-defined milestones that trigger economic rewards.
  • Signature of all the parties.

Frequently Asked Questions

The main risk is the bankruptcy of the venture and the loss of capital. However, you should also consider the serious risk posed by the potential dilution of your investment should new shareholders enter the equation. That is why a strong lawyer would work with an investor to include anti-dilution clauses in their investments.

If the shareholder’s agreement is well-drafted it services to regulate everyone’s role, so this should eliminate the risk of regular interference by investors. Our team of lawyers can help clients to ensure this behavior is minimized.

I used Lexidy services to apply for SETR status.I did it after contacting a number of providers, but Lexidy were the only ones that consistently kept regular communication, promptly answered e-mails, kept all the appointments. Something that is a normal expectation but rarely met in Spain :).In addition they were very competent, provided clear and accurate advice. They also flexible and accommodating and Sara Rinaldi that i dealt with is a very pleasant person to deal with.It seems it is a business that have a clear business model of providing good quality service and as such I think it deserves to be promoted.

The Lexidy team is uniquely positioned to provide pan-European business and tax advisory services; what would be complex or impossible for a country-specific advisor is straightforward for Lexidy. They answered in days what would take weeks for other firms.

I’ve dealt with hundreds of solicitors through business over the years but I must say Cristina and Lexidy Law are really something special. Responsiveness, proactiveness, knowledge and professionalism is, quite frankly, outstanding.M.

Our company engaged Lexidy Law Boutique to help pursue our monetary claim against a former business partner registered under Spanish jurisdiction. They provided a professional work and our claim got enforced even before it was expected. We will be happy to engage them anytime in the future for any civil law related matters and I can only recommend their services.

Let me start by saying that I normally do not write reviews - and I am often skeptical of the authenticity of the ones that are left. However, I feel like this law team has earned it and here's why...I am the type of person who will do endless research & contact several people before making a decision. I did the same when looking for a Spanish law firm that would be able to quickly handle my immigration matters and, most recently, help me with my leasing agreement for my apartment.They are extremely responsive (replying within a couple of hours of my messages) and even after office hours.Maximiliano, in particular, has been exceptional. He put a lot of effort to understand all the details of my situation so he can find the best solution.It was quickly evident that he understands that not all people have the same immigration situation and was going to tailor a solution specific to me.What impressed me most though was how he was thoughtful enough to make sure that his immigration solution did not impact my tax or business situation adversely. His focus on the big picture, while not missing the important small details is one of the main reasons why I felt compelled to write a review.Lastly, Max even made himself available during the time I was crossing the border, just in case I had any issues.With all this being said, I have worked with many lawyers in the past - many simply look for "a solution", but the great lawyers look for the "best solution". Everyone I have interacted with thus far at Lexidy seems to understand the latter. I feel very fortunate to have come across them in my research.I know how stressful it can be, especially when dealing with immigration issues. So, I hope this helps others out there that might be in the same situation I was in.

I have had the pleasure to work with a lot of Lexidy's departments. Working with Max Aggazi Paulet to achieve everything needed for my residency was incredible. he help endlessly until everything was accomplished. Soon after i began working with their Real estate department. It has been a journey and they have stuck with me every step of the way. They have gone beyond the scope of their duties to help my dreams of purchasing a property in Spain come to fruition. I would like to thank Alejandro Cano and Jordi Aranda for for everything. Last but not least through the entire Process I have had the absolute pleasure to work with Camila Broderson. She is a Gem. She has guided me in every step to work on opening my LLC in Spain and has also gone beyond the scope of her duties to assist and be available at any time. I plan to continue to work with team at Lexidy and would highly recommend them to everyone. Thank you Lexidy team for everything that you have done so far! I look forward to continuing our partnerships and friendships!
