    Thumbs up Yes... Partnership

    Reference: Tom West's Dictionary
    Also, Black's Law Dictionary (Deluxe Eighth Edition) gives the following general definition of "partnership":
    A voluntary association of two or more persons who jointly own and carry on as a business for profit.
    This same dictionary carries all the different types of "partnerships", each with their respective definitions.

    Hope it helps Hebe!

    Thanks so much for your reference Mem. My problem is that I am not sure about the definition of “Sociedad de Personas”, At the beginning I thought of it as a Company (Sociedad) whose shareholders are individuals (personas) and not other companies (personas jurídicas). I also thought of it as a “de facto” partnership (non-incorporated company). Unfortunately not even the lawyers I know have been able to clarify this issue. If I had a clear understanding of the meaning I would probably be able come up with a fair translation. So far the only thing that is clear to me is that a “Sociedad de personas” (as opposed to a Sociedad de Capital) is a company in which the partners (not the capital) have more relevance; But how do I transmit that idea across in English with a single term? : He ahí mi dilema

    Hi Hebe!
    I don't quite understand what you need, maybe more context would be helpful to understand what you're looking for... I thought of a cooperative, but I'm not sure.
    Hope these links help you

    Good luck!
