Question posted in the General Law category relating to North West
I am a 17 year old with a business with a friend who is 20 years old. We want funding to raise our capital and Because she's older technically the business is in her name and the profit even though its shared it will all go to her and if something happens to our friendship and we have a falling out and she decides to be mean about it everything I've worked hard for will go to her. So my question is even though I'm a minor how can I legally protect myself against such and make sure even though our friendship doesn't last and something happens I'm still protected the business is still considered "ours" and I'm getting my share of the profits.
