Developing Effective Strategic Alliances
Take the time to thoroughly analyze what you desire from a strategic
alliance. Make sure your intent and expectations are realized and
addressed in a written agreement.
Avoid using the term partner,
particularly in written documents including marketing materials.
There is a very specific legal connotation of partners and
partnerships, and it exists even without a filing with the Secretary
Understand the language.
Some of the "contract" terms you need to be familiar with include
limited liability, indemnification, joint and severable liability,
and liquidated damages. Be sure you understand the ramifications of
incorporating mediation and arbitration language into an agreement.
At the beginning, talk about the end.
There are two topics that are difficult to discuss at the beginning
of any relationship — (a) what should be done if something goes
wrong, and (b) what's the best way to sever the relationship. These
issues need to be addressed in a written agreement. You have a
better chance of salvaging a relationship if you can refer to
pre-specified conditions and approaches to resolution.
Protect the corporate veil.
Be careful how you sign an agreement. You should always sign in your
official capacity on behalf of your company. Depending on your
business entity, you may be able to circumvent giving a personal
Seek legal advice.
Many entrepreneurs avoid this important step. There is a common
concern that if they introduce a legal agreement they will alienate
the other person. Legal agreements can and should be user-friendly
documents that define the specifics of a mutually beneficial
relationship. A solid agreement will define your business
relationship, protect all parties involved, and set forth remedies
Use a multi-discipline lawyer.
Find a lawyer with a strong business background and, ideally, one
who has a solid understanding of sales and marketing. These skills
ensure you will receive sound business advice, not just legal
advice. Consider the legal fees an investment hedge against big
headaches, not an unnecessary expense. Another plus is that once you
have created one of these agreements you may be able to use it again
and again with minor modifications.
An International Reciprocal Trade Association
IRTA Investigation Concludes Daniel Evans & Ormita Fraudulent
The Ormita Report, released on March 26, 2014, reveals a long
history of misinformation and fraudulent activities by Daniel Evans
and his company Ormita. The report was well researched and written
by New Zealand author and blogger Dennis Smith, and it provides
credible evidence that Ormita is an international con.
The findings of The Ormita Report are consistent with IRTA's
knowledge of Mr. Evan's deceptive business practices and Ormita as a
fraudulent organization. According to the author, Ormita is "little
more than a one-man-band using smoke and mirrors" and its claimed
trade volume figures are a "total fabrication."
IRTA highly recommends that you read the report, and then inform any
barter companies or organizations that are considering doing
business with Daniel Evans or Ormita, as well as any victims of Mr.
Evans and Ormita.
IRTA was founded in 1979 to foster the common interests of the
worldwide barter industry and to uphold high standards of ethical
business practices within the industry.
Over the last thirty-five years IRTA has taken a proactive role in
preserving, protecting and enhancing the global barter industry.
We believe that IRTA has a responsibility to expose and confront
dubious barter operators so as to protect the public and fellow
barter industry members from harm.
Widespread dissemination of this comprehensive report will be of
benefit to the international business community.
The Ormita Report can be found at www.theormitareport.com.

Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 757-393-2292 (U.S.).
