A form of partnership that arises where no fixed term has been agreed for the duration of the partnership or the partnership has been entered into for an undefined term. A partnership at will may be dissolved at any time by a partner serving notice on the other partner(s). A partnership will be a partnership at will unless contrary intention can be proved, for this, there must be an express or implied agreement that is inconsistent with the right which a partner would otherwise have to determine the partnership by notice.
