Deed of Retirement – Partnership

A deed of retirement from partnership sets out the terms on which one or more of the partners cease to be members of that partnership. It should not be used where there is a partnership involving two partners and one is retiring, as it assumes that a partnership will continue after the retirement of one of the partners. This deed of retirement from partnership contains a restraint (see clause 5). This clause states that the retiring partner must not: carry on or be involved in a business similar to, or in competition with, the partnership; or use, disclose or communicate any confidential information relating to the partnership. If the partners negotiate that there is to be no restraint then this clause should be deleted.
