Dissociation is caused by 10 different species: (1) a partner says he wants to go out; (2) an event triggers a dissociation in accordance with the partnership agreement; (3) that a partner be appointed in accordance with the agreement; (4) a partner is excluded by a unanimous vote of the others because it is illegal to sue with that partner, because that partner has transferred all shares of the partnership to an acquirer (except for security reasons) or because the existence of a business partner or partnership partner is effectively terminated; (5) by court order, at the request of the company or another partner, because it has been found that the designated partner behaved badly (acting deliberately in a serious manner, continuing to abuse the agreement, actions that render the continuation of the transaction unenforceable); (6) the partner declared bankruptcy; (7) the partner has died, appointed a guardian or has been convicted as incompetent; (8) the partner is a trust fund whose assets are depleted; (9) the partner is an estate and the interest of the estate in the company has been fully transferred; (10) the partner dies or, if the partner is another partnership or a strust or estate company, the existence of that business is over. RUPA, Section 601. If the partners decide not to continue the transaction after the dissolution, they are required to terminate the transaction. The partnership will not continue after dissolution until the liquidation of its activities, after which it will be terminated. UPA, Section 30; RUPA, Section 802(a). Settlement of the above transaction, settlement of accounts and termination of a business. complete all 100-year transactions at the time of dissolution and settlement of all claims. The partners must then settle accounts with each other in order to distribute the remaining assets. Partners (with the exception of a non-distant) may stop the process at any time after the dissolution and before the liquidation closes and continue the transaction. But the company is not responsible for an act that is not obvious in the normal course of business, unless the deed has been approved by the others. RUPA, Section 301(2); The UPA, Section 9, paragraph 2, Section 401 (j) of the RUPA, requires the unanimous agreement of the partners for the granting of powers outside of ordinary management, unless the partnership agreement provides for something else. However, RUPA has made significant changes to corporate law, including the adoption of the concept of “dissociation.” Although the term is not defined in RUPA, dissociation appears to have replaced “dissolution,” since the word was used before RUPA.
