Partnership disputes

We focus on successful commercial outcomes

Our multi-disciplinary team provides pragmatic, cost-effective advice with commercial success in mind. Partnership disputes can be bitter, protracted and expensive. We are outcome-focused, and since we act for individuals and partnerships we can anticipate and be ready to respond to the strategies that opponents might adopt.

We have many years of experience advising on the more contentious aspects of partnership, including profit sharing, discrimination, whistleblowing, retirement, expulsion, restrictive covenants and injunctions.
