Company and Partnership



Company and Partnership Agreement and Dispute Team

Our specialist barristers bring strong forensic skills to resolving director and partner disputes on behalf of businesses and individuals.

We undertake a variety of actions, up to and including complex major claims.

Securing assets sometimes requires an urgent response and we have an out-of-hours helpline that is monitored 24 hours a day. 

As well as resolving disputes, we help many clients avoid them by advising on and drafting legal documents such as terms of partnership/LLP, share sale agreements and reductions in capital.

Our specialisms include:-

  • Dissolution disputes
  • Forensic partnership accountancy and asset tracing
  • Asset recovery from defaulting directors / partners
  • Shae sale disputes
  • Directors’ duties and disqualification
  • Minority shareholder actions
  • Winding up petitions
  • Advice and drafting in non-contentious matters such as:
    • terms of partnership / LLP
    • company meetings and resolutions
    • share sale agreements
    • reductions in capital
    • schemes of arrangement

Here are some examples of our recent work:

  • Begum v Hossain [2015] EWCA Civ 717 - Christopher Mann for the appellant – successful appeal to the Court of Appeal on the basis that an expert valuer of shares materially departed from his mandate.
  • Sethi v Patel & Scitec Group Ltd [2012] (Ch) – Gabriel Buttimore – A valuation trial following finding of unfair prejudice in 2010 establishing share buy-out value of the company of £900,000 including issues of commercial fraud.
