(a) By any act appropriate for winding up partnership affairs or completing transactions unfinished at dissolution;

(b) By any transaction which would bind the partnership if dissolution had not taken place, if the other party to the transaction:

(I) Had extended credit to the partnership prior to dissolution and had no knowledge or notice of the dissolution; or

(II) Though the other party had not so extended credit, had nevertheless known of the partnership prior to dissolution, and had no knowledge or notice of dissolution, the fact of dissolution having not been advertised in a newspaper of general circulation in the place, or in each place if more than one, at which the partnership business was regularly carried on.

(2) The liability of a partner under subsection (1) (b) of this section shall be satisfied out of partnership assets alone when such partner had been, prior to dissolution:

(a) Unknown as a partner to the person with whom the contract is made; and

(b) So far unknown and inactive in partnership affairs that the business reputation of the partnership could not be said to have been in any degree due to the partner's connection with it.

(3) The partnership is in no case bound by any act of a partner after dissolution:

(a) Where the partnership is dissolved because it is unlawful to carry on the business, unless the act is appropriate for winding up partnership affairs; or

(b) Where the partner has become bankrupt; or

(c) Where the partner has no authority to wind up partnership affairs except by transaction with one who:

(I) Had extended credit to the partnership prior to dissolution and had no knowledge or notice of the partner's want of authority; or

(II) Had not extended credit to the partnership prior to dissolution, and had no knowledge or notice of the partner's want of authority, the fact of the partner's want of authority having not been advertised in the manner provided for advertising the fact of dissolution in subsection (1) (b) (II) of this section.

(4) Nothing in this section shall affect the liability under section 7-60-116 of any person who, after dissolution, purports to be a partner or consents to being represented by another as a partner in a partnership engaged in carrying on business.
