In Walsh and others v Needleman Treon (A Firm) and others, the High Court held that an individual who was held out on the Firm’s note paper as a partner, was not actually a partner and only an employee.

As such he had no liability to the claimants who were bringing claims against the firm for damages and restitution.

As a question of fact he was an employee of the firm and in relation to him being held out as a partner, even if he was held out as such, there was no evidence that the claimants relied on this holding out or would have done anything different absent the representation.
