When a business partner is diagnosed as terminally ill, the situation for all partnership stakeholders can be extremely sensitive and costly. For the reality is that far too many partnership agreements, if there even is such an agreement, are inadequately drafted to effectively deal with terminal illness.

Some of the major inadequacies that arise in such agreements include an expectation of life insurance when there is none or insufficient insurance, when the payment arrangement on the partnership unit purchase is too brief, and where there is inadequate liquidity to meet the calculated partnership unit buy-out price . Each of these instant instances and others, pose serious problems for both the terminally ill partner and his / her estate upon their death and the surviving partners who acquire the partnership interest and become responsible for the acquisition price.

As a result, it tends to be prudent to revisit the partnership agreement when a partner becomes terminally ill, and potentially negotiate alternate arrangements as to the partner's buy-out.
