Partnership disputes

Disputes between partners and members of LLPs are invariably highly personal, with reputations and careers often at stake. We are sensitive to these issues whilst providing robust, practical and commercial advice from the outset.

Our team is ranked as one of the leading UK firms in Partnership work.  We regularly advise both remaining and departing partners and members in professional partnerships and LLPs including accountants, surveyors and solicitors. Within the team we also have niche experience of disputes involving medical practitioner partnerships, particularly dentists and GPs.

Disputes which often arise involve the rights and liabilities of the parties following a partner’s or member’s retirement or expulsion from the partnership or LLP or the dissolution or winding-up of the organisation.  They can also often involve managing out under-performing partners whilst causing minimal disruption to other staff and clients.  We use mediation as a particularly effective tool to achieve sensible and cost effective resolutions as early as possible. Mediation has the added benefit of being a confidential process.  However, if court action is needed, we take swift and decisive action.  Our team has a wealth of litigation experience.

We are happy to provide you with an initial assessment and recommend preliminary action on a fixed fee basis in order to provide you with certainty of cost.
