TMEP 611.06(b): Signature by Partnership

October 2017 Edition of the TMEP

611.06(b)    Signature by Partnership

Where a document must be signed by someone with legal authority to bind a partnership, a general partner must sign.  Signature by all the general partners is not necessary.  If the partnership comprises general partners who are juristic entities (e.g., the general partners are corporations), someone with legal authority to bind that type of juristic entity must sign.

In appropriate cases, a document filed by a partnership may be signed by an official other than a general partner, if the record contains an explanation or documentation indicating that the person signing the document has legal authority to bind the partnership.
