Perspectives on the Law of Partnership in South Africa examines the most problematic issues in the law of partnership. It investigates specific issues in the area of partnership law, painting a broader picture of all the other relevant areas involved. In following a ‘perspectives’ approach – presenting a historical and a comparative perspective – the book offers a detailed consideration of complex areas of partnership law while at the same time exploring the law in general.

Topics discussed range from the history and development of partnership law to perennial classical favourites such as the leonine partnership, the triple contract and universal partnership proper, all three of which contributed to the delineation of the partnership concept.

Aspects of the law in general that are discussed in detail include: 

  • legal status and its attendant entity and aggregate theories
  • representation and mutual mandate
  • partnerships en commandite
  • anonymous, limited and limited liability partnerships
  • the removal of the limit on the number of partners
  • partnership sequestration
  • the dual priorities rule.

Perspectives on the Law of Partnership in South Africa is offered as a scholarly book for the subject specialist with the expectation that it will also invigorate interest in and advance research on the law of partnership.
