Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If a partner quits or is expelled then the partnership dissolution is the result of an Act of the ________________?

    Explanation
    If a partner quits or is expelled, the partnership dissolution is the result of an act of the partners themselves. In a partnership, the decision to dissolve the partnership is typically made collectively by the partners. When a partner decides to leave or is forced out, it triggers the dissolution process, which requires the remaining partners to agree on the terms and conditions of the dissolution. Therefore, the dissolution is a direct consequence of the partners' actions and decisions.

When a partner is adjudicated insane, has another incapacity, or is convicted of a crime that prejudices the partnership, the court may order the dissolution of the partnership.

In all these cases, the dissolution of the partnership is a result of a court decision.

    Explanation
    If a partner dies or files bankruptcy, the partnership dissolution occurs automatically without the need for any specific action by the partners. This is because the law recognizes that the death or bankruptcy of a partner fundamentally changes the nature of the partnership and makes it impractical or impossible to continue operating. Therefore, the dissolution is deemed to occur by operation of law, meaning it happens automatically as a result of the legal principles governing partnerships.
