Partnership Agreement Template

This partnership agreement template is a tool that provides a starting point when drafting an agreement for two main types of partnerships, namely, a general partnership or an undeclared partnership. It is not appropriate for a transactional agreement, which is covered by our Transactional Agreement template (Z03200).

Unfortunately, it was not possible to create a template that would also apply to other collaborative arrangements, such as limited partnerships, due to the number of distinct clauses this would require. For example, in the case of a limited partnership, accommodating two different categories of partners (general partner and limited partners). For this reason, we recommend that you use our Limited Partnership Agreement template (A04200). This partnership agreement template is also not suitable for a joint venture agreement, which is a cross between a transactional agreement and a partnership agreement; however, you can use our Joint Venture Agreement template (A08500).

This template uses our standardized system for organizing clauses that will put an end to the confusion currently found in most business agreements. Our innovative system organizes clauses based on a set of contractual "addresses" that are always identified by the same number and represent distinct contractual concepts. All our business agreements are organized according to this straightforward hierarchical structure, which facilitates contract analysis because the clauses are easier to find.

Partnership Agreement Template

We recommend using this partnership agreement template when forming any type of business partnership, within the limits set out under the adjacent tab "Description" and when the applicable law does not require a mandatory form.
