A: Apparent authority is a difficult area as far as legal proof is concerned. One usually has to show that the wrongful actions of the individual who claimed the authority of a partner were accomplished with either the actual knowledge of the real partners or that the real partners were so careless that circumstances allowed for the individual acting as a claimed partner to convince you that he or she had the authority of a partner. You should consult l an attorney on a matter such as this as soon as possible.
