LLPs, Partnerships & Hedge Funds


Resolving matters in the best way possible

Disputes between LLP members and partners in a traditional partnership happen far more regularly than you might think. 

We advise partnerships and LLPs and, unlike many law firms, we also advise individual partners and members of an LLP. We believe this offers us valuable insight into how best to resolve disputes of this nature. Our involvement is often kept quiet, as publicity is seldom welcome in these matters. 

We are also experienced in resolving disputes by mediation or if appropriate by arbitration. Our specialist lawyers are well versed in the issues affecting partnerships and LLPs and we only offer our clients commercially-focused pragmatic advice on a range of matters. These include: 

  • drafting and interpreting LLP and Partnership Agreements
  • restructuring 
  • compulsory retirement rights and procedures
  • rights on retirement generally
  • discrimination issues
  • compensation and bonus disputes
  • team moves

We also advise financial institutions and funds on matters such as partnership-based remuneration and incentive structures. Due to recent changes in legislation, we also advise on issues affecting the status of fixed share members. A further area involves advising hedge funds or individual managers on carried interest and co-investment rights.
