The Hawaii partnership agreement is a legal document that sets rules for the relationship between the partners in a certain business venture.

By drafting the partnership agreement, the parties are minimizing the possibility of having any disputes in the future since the document will provide every aspect of the business operation, such as their contributions, managing rights, profit sharing, liability, and more.

Moreover, even if a dispute arises between the business partners, the articles of partnership will help the partners resolve the dispute more efficiently and minimize the expenses related to it.

In Hawaii, the partnership agreement is also commonly called the partnership contract or the partnership deed.
