(law) A fractional share. A court, for example, may award damages aliquot against several parties who breached a contract, meaning that each must pay a proportionate share of the damages. Aliquot liability differs from joint and several liability, in that the latter refers to whether the breaching parties may be sued and held liable together or individually. See joint and several liability.
