Yes I know I should have it written down. My situation is awkward, I joined a midsize company that has few partners. My agreement with the (verbal) was put in X years, wanted a N% stake in the company fully vested at the end of to 5 years. Now I need to get this in writing, a new twist is the agreement wants to changed X + 5 years, for N% stake. I have a room to negotiate obviously. But If I am locked up for X + 5 years I am looking for voting rights and at least board level representation. My intention is the extra 5 years I would like to make sure that I get to vote on any strategic directions.
