Although partnerships open up dynamic business possibilities, they bring with them both complications and responsibilities. With in-depth experience in partnership issues, our employment team provides clients with clear and practical advice to help them negotiate these complexities.
We advise on all aspects of partnership law, including the appointment and retirement of partners, related employment issues and conversion to LLP status. We also act on behalf of partnerships when disputes arise with current, retired or expelled partners, particularly regarding discrimination claims.
Our partnership clients come from a variety of sectors, and include law firms, stockbrokers, accountancy firms and a large veterinary practice. Although most of them are based in the UK and the US, the firm's international profile attracts clients with operations in other locations worldwide.
