Law, Culture and the Lore of Partnership: Of Entrepreneurs, Accountability, and the Evolving Status of Partners

Abstract:     
In important respects, contemporary partnerships are modifying the associational form under which they operate in ways that represent clear departures from the classic partnership model. This article explores the mystique of partnership, the role of partnership in our culture, and how partnership law has evolved to encourage the structuring of relationships that bear little resemblance to the partnership model on which the law was developed (e.g., nonequity partners in professional services firms). It considers the implications of this change and questions whether long-standing assumptions concerning what it means to be a "partner" continue to hold.
