Articles Of Partnership

A document that formalizes an agreement between parties who want to enter a business arrangement to pool their labor and capital and in which all owners are equally responsible for the company's liabilities and entitled to its assets according to agreed-upon percentages. In addition to being an important legal document, the articles of partnership can be useful in preventing and resolving disagreements among partners since it clarifies the terms of the relationship.
