For a retiring partner, this is particularly important since they remain liable not only for debts contracted by the firm during membership, but also for debts contracted with old creditors in retirement. The correct signature on such letters is that of the name of the firm, without the addition of any partner's name.
Retirement of a partner is announced like this:
