Partnership  Disputes

Partnership disputes arising in traditional partnerships and LLPs happen more often than you might think and for a variety of reasons.  Sadly such disputes can be expensive, time consuming and destructive; not to mention unpleasant for all parties involved.

Managing a Partnership Dispute

If you find yourself managing a dispute within your partnership, or if you are in dispute with your partners, the first thing to do is take professional legal advice. Understanding the legal position is important, as it is key to avoiding doing anything which may compromise the position of the partnership or your position.  In our experience most partnership disputes, if they are dealt with in a timely fashion can be settled without the need for litigation.

Avoiding Partnership Disputes

Preparation, preparation, preparation: ensure that the proper provisions and procedures are in place from the outset. Review your partnership agreement at appropriate intervals.
