Partnership Disputes

At Eldwick Law, our commercial expertise means that we are specialists in assisting and advising traditional partnerships, members, LLPs and partners in resolving contentious or non-contentious partnership disputes. These disputes can cover a variety of issues such as breach of fiduciary duties, diversion and distribution of assets, dissolving or winding up partnerships and unlawful discrimination.

We offer pragmatic advice and understand that these disputes can be costly, time-consuming and ultimately damaging to the businesses involved. These kinds of disputes are highly personal and we pride ourselves in our ability to resolve these disputes sensitively and efficiently, without causing any major destruction to the running of business.

Our aim is to help clients resolve these disputes as quickly as possible. We offer practical advice and seek to solve the disputes by way of Alternative Dispute Resolution to enable those involved to enter into structured mediation to settle disputes. This is beneficial from a costs perspective for the client and also ensures that the dispute stays confidential. In some circumstances, cases cannot be resolved this way, so we have the skills, expertise and experience for court and arbitration proceedings. Our longstanding relationships with expert and forensic accountants means that we have direct access to the right experts to assist with your case.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Good faith issues;
  • Expulsions and compulsory retirements;
  • Dissolutions;
  • Garden leave provisions;
  • Restrictive covenants;
  • Forced retirements;
  • Breach of “good leaver” and “bad leaver” provisions.

If you find yourself in a position where you have become embroiled in a dispute with your fellow partner(s), contact our expert solicitors for advice.
