In general partnerships a partner’s liability is joint and several. That means that he or she is liable individually for all the debts and liabilities of the firm irrespective of their share of the partnership. In this case it is normal for partners to give indemnities to each other so that if a creditor pursues one partner, he or she can then claim their share back from the other partners. It is usual for salaried or fixed equity partners to have indemnities from all the equity owning partners in the firm to protect them. The easiest way to limit your liability as a partner is to incorporate your partnership into a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) where, as the name implies, your liability will be limited.
