The Tennessee partnership agreement is a legal document that outlines all the rules for how the partnership will be structured and operated after its establishment.

Even though the partnership agreement or partnership deed is not always required for the establishment of the business partnership, the partners often choose to make one since federal and state laws don’t provide very detailed regulations on how the business partnership should be operated.

Therefore, the partners often choose to create this type of document to customize and provide more specific regulation within the framework of federal and state laws and determine the relationship between the partners in the business partnership.

The Tennessee partnership agreement is also referred to as the “partnership contract” or the “articles of partnership.”
