This answer was rated:

I understand that if I go bankrupt in England, any partnership I am in would automatically dissolve. However, does this apply to a partnership under Scots Law? I have been bankrupt for three months, but a firm of lawyers continues to claim to represent a partnership that I was part of in Scotland that I want no part of. My hope is that it should have also dissolved.
Thank you for your question.
The law is the same in England and Scotland and is covered by the Partnership Act 1890:
"33. Dissolution by bankruptcy, death, or charge.
(1) Subject to any agreement between the partners, every partnership is dissolved as regards all
the partners by the death or bankruptcy of any partner."
So the partnership will dissolve unless there is an agreement to say otherwise.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
