We advise professional services firms which operate through both traditional (general) partnerships and the current vehicle of choice, limited liability partnerships.
We advise across all sectors especially financial services and insurance including partnerships of lawyers, accountants, architects, doctors and other medical professionals, investment funds and hedge funds. Our clients include UK and overseas law firms, private equity investors and fund managers.
We work with our clients to identify and implement commercial solutions to challenges such as partner exits, team moves and restrictive covenant design and enforcement. We also provide independent and experienced experts to carry out internal investigations and provide support to professional services firms and partners facing external criminal and regulatory investigations.
With effect from April 2016, most UK companies and LLPs will be required by law to keep and maintain a new register of people with significant control over the company or LLP. In this article we highlight the new requirement and what it means for you.
