Partnerships and LLPs

We provide you with straightforward and cost-effective legal advice to help you set up the right partnership structure on the right terms for you. We’ll help with issues such as profit shares, capital contributions and succession which are best dealt with in a formal agreement that clearly sets out each partner’ rights and responsibilities.

Buying and selling business

Moving from initial negotiation to signing on the dotted line is exciting – but it can also be a complex process. Let us take the strain and help you plan the future.

From company formation to shareholder agreements, from joint ventures to competitive tendering, we can assist your business at the key points of its development.

Commercial contract and other advice
