You are a trainee solicitor in Delaney Williams, Lawyers and Consultants. You work for Jo Delaney, Lawyer.

Prepare two memos as per the instructions on Files 1 and 2 below

Client File #1

Vishnu, Simon, Dee, and Madigan have lived on the south coast of NSW. They met at University in Canberra on the agriculture degree. They set up a 2 hectare commercial seaweed farm on Dee’s family property for the purpose of carbon sequestration. The farm in its first 12 months of commercial production now produces $1.2 million dollars per hectare per year of carbon sequestration which they can sell to local businesses. Vishnu and Simon constructed portable buildings and accommodation on site and they paid for the materials out of their own funds which was $60,000.

The four friends have lived communally and have not paid themselves a wage.

For personal reason Simon has returned to Victoria. He is seeking to be paid out of the business and is seeking a maximum payout.

Dee has emailed Simon to say the arrangement is a joint venture. The land and all constructions thereon are hers. She is prepared however to pay Simon ‘purely as a goodwill gesture’ the full and final sum of $100,000.

Simon comes to see your firm for legal advice. He wants to know:

  • Was there a joint venture or other type of business relationship and what is the relevant law?
  • What legal case has Simon got to maximise his pay-out?
