(1) Every member of a limited liability partnership is the agent of the limited liability partnership.
(2) But a limited liability partnership is not bound by anything done by a member in dealing with a person if:
(a) the member in fact has no authority to act for the limited liability partnership by doing that thing, and
(b) the person knows that he has no authority or does not know or believe him to be a member of the limited liability partnership.
(3) Where a person has ceased to be a member of a limited liability partnership, the former member is to be regarded (in relation to any person dealing with the limited liability partnership) as still being a member of the limited liability partnership unless:
(a) the person has notice that the former member has ceased to be a member of the limited liability partnership, or
(b) notice that the former member has ceased to be a member of the limited liability partnership has been delivered to the Registrar.
(4) Where a member of a limited liability partnership is liable to any person (other than another member of the limited liability partnership) as a result of that member's wrongful act or omission (in the course of the business of the limited liability partnership or with its authority) the limited liability partnership is liable to the same extent as the member.
