If the fundamental objects of a partnership are legal, the fact that the partnership agreement or rules contain illegal provisions does not invalidate the whole1; and, if the objects of the partnership can, and are intended to, be carried out without any breach of the common law or statute, the fact that one partner has been guilty of illegal acts2 in the conduct of the business does not make the partnership illegal or prevent an innocent partner from enforcing the partnership obligations3.
