Our legal services for Partnerships include:
As a Partner is typically both an owner and employee of their firm, disputes involving Partners can be complex and high stakes affairs. Specialist legal advice is required above and beyond that needed by a salaried employee.
Many of our clients are Partners in LP or LLP firms. Others plan to join Partnerships or to set up their own firms. Regardless of the sort of Partner you are or plan to be, be it an equity or salaried Partner in an accountancy or law firm LLP, a doctor, dentist or architect, or a member of a hedge fund or private equity Partnership; Slater and Gordon Lawyers have specialist Partnership Solicitors that can advise you in any situation that may arise as a Partner or would-be Partner at a professional services firm.
We it comes to Partner Dispute Resolution we have considerable experience of applying appropriate dispute resolution methods, including mediation and arbitration to resolve the many differences that can arise between Partners; including disputes over profit share or liability, disagreements over client ownership or difficulties arising out of ambiguously or poorly worded Partnership deeds.
We are acutely aware that Partnerships can be highly selective on whom they admit and often seem like exclusive clubs with very unclear admission criteria. However, while Partnerships can be selective, they are still obliged not to discriminate on the grounds of race, sex, maternity, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age.
Immediate legal representation is available anywhere in the UK.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers are ideally suited to advise individuals on the more general issues surrounding the set up, joining, smooth running and ultimate dissolution or departure from a professional Partnership. With our national reputation and independent recognition as the UK's leading employment law firm for individuals, we have considerable experience of advising Partners and Senior Management in a variety of sectors.
We can assist you with setting up a Partnership or LLP, or on joining an existing Partnership paying considerable attention to the vital provisions covering control, profit share, voting rights, appeals, and termination.
Our aim is to deliver the best results to our Partner clients, whether through maximising financial compensation, or negotiating to protect reputations built up through years of hard work.
