A group of individuals that form a partnership does not take on a separate legalpersonality from the people who make up the partnership. this differs from acorporation. that means, when dealing with third parties, every partner is consideredan agent of every other partner, and each partner has the power to bind all otherpartners in contractual relationships with third parties. for one partner to sue thepartnership is akin to the partner suing him or herself. however, there is extensivelegislation that provides avenues of compensation for circumstances such as fraud,etc., allowing victimized partners to enforce rules against offending partners. thecourts may have to get involved to enforce the rules that the partners are obligated tofollow.
