I’m considering going into business with a partner. Does anyone know how ownership in a typical MEP firm would work with one mechanical and one electrical partner? If we only worked on the same jobs, mechanical would represent 60% of the typical fee. Does that make 60% ownership fair? Once the business got going though you would hire more mechanical guys than electrical and maybe this would even out the money situation, but with only two P.E.’s the mechanical would also carry 60% of the liability. I would appreciate any opinions on the subject.
