    I think there is some confusion of terminology here. Companies don't have partners, partnerships have partners.

    You're right, wasn't really thinking about it properly. Its a partnership, would the partnership itself be liable or would the individual partner be liable

    You've missed quite a big chunk of analysis leading up to that, i.e. whether the partnership is liable and then if it is how one would enforce that.
