Our corporate team regularly advise professional firms on partnership law and related issues. We work with partnerships across Scotland, and in many sectors – including medical, dental, accounting, architecture, surveying and law partnerships.
We can offer you specialist advice on:
- preparing partnership agreements, and agreements for Scottish Limited Partnerships and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP)
- incorporating your partnership into a limited liability company
- resolution of disputes between partners
- dissolution of partnerships, non-contentious and contentious.
Is a partnership the best structure for your business?
If you are thinking about starting a partnership, we can help you decide if it is the right thing to do, and talk you through the benefits and disadvantages. Rather than giving you off-the-shelf agreements, we will listen to what you tell us, and make sure the agreement matches the circumstances and personalities involved.
At all stages of setting up, structuring and running a partnership, we can discuss risk management. This will minimise the possibility of issues becoming contentious later on, and could save you considerable future expense or distraction from running the business.
Advising you in the round
Our emphasis on building good relationships with clients means we often work for individual partners and their families, as well as for their partnership. This helps us to offer them holistic services that work for all aspects of their lives.
