We specialise in partnership and business disputes. We advise partners who have fallen out and wish to be paid for their share of the business, which may require the disposal of properties etc. or a partner, or group of partners, buying out the remaining partner(s). We advise on obtaining a proper account of profits and work closely with specialist forensic accountants, especially in cases where there is a dispute concerning the figures.
We advise clients on their rights and obligations and frequently negotiate disputes by entering into alternative dispute resolution (ADR) which is quicker and more cost effective than embarking on costly and lengthy litigation. This sometimes includes mediation.
We may be required to obtain injunctions in preventing some of the partners from, for example, disposing of the partnership assets.
