Partnership Deed

What is a partnership deed?

A partnership deed is another name for a partnership agreement, and sets out the terms and conditions of a partnership. This legal document can be drawn up between those entering into a general, limited, or limited liability partnership.

Why do you need a partnership deed?

Without a partnership deed in place, general partnerships will be bound by the 1890 Partnership Act. The terms of this act are not always suited to the needs of a modern business. For example, the expulsion of a partner for misconduct or retirement of a partner is impossible, and if a partner dies the business usually has to be dissolved.

What to include in a partnership deed:

Clearly the 1890 Act leaves something to be desired in terms of protecting your business. Furthermore every partnership is different, so the one-size fits all approach of a partnership deed template simply won’t do. We always advise anybody thinking of entering a partnership to ensure a bespoke partnership deed is drawn up by an experienced legal professional.
