UK: England and Wales: no partnership between four individuals

The Court of Appeal gave judgment today in Ilott v Williams & Ors [2013] EWCA Civ 645. The court unanimously upheld the trial judge's decision that no partnership existed between four individuals within section 1(1) of the Partnership Act 1890. Lady Justice Arden, delivering the only reasoned judgment, noted that section 1(1) reflected the deliberate legislative policy that in order for a partnership to exist, there needed to be more than a decision to set up a business.
