Partnership Agreement Article Re: Payment for a Partner's Interest Upon Withdrawal or Dissociation


More Info
									A partnership agreement sets forth the terms and conditions that govern the relationship
between business partners and their obligations to the partnership. Without a written
partnership agreement, state law may determine the default rules as to the rights of
partners and how partnership assets and liabilities will be distributed. Depending on the
goals and purposes of the partnership, various provisions can be included in the
agreement detailing the rules that will govern the relationship between the partners and
what shall occur if specific contingencies arise. This partnership agreement article on
Payment for a Partner’s Dissociation or Withdrawal may be inserted into a partnership
agreement and can be modified depending on the partners’ specific needs.
