To form a general partnership in Texas, you need to choose a unique partnership name, draft a partnership agreement, and execute the partnership agreement. It is advisable to consult with an experienced attorney to ensure compliance with all legal requirements.

While Texas law does not require a written partnership agreement, it is highly recommended to have one in place. A written agreement helps establish clear expectations, outlines partner responsibilities, addresses profit-sharing, and provides a framework for dispute resolution

It is crucial to have a well-drafted agreement to protect the interests of all partners.
