Our partnership practice is recognised as being the UK market leader. It’s something we’re rather proud of and, for our clients, we hope the benefits are equally clear cut.
Apart from our many years’ experience in partnership law, our depth of understanding of the management and regulation of professional businesses, our practical experience and negotiating skills help clients to resolve tricky contentious issues.
We are also familiar with alternative dispute resolution techniques. For instance, we have used mediation to settle bitter partnership disputes, enabling clients to get on with the task of running a business rather than engage in expensive and time-consuming litigation. When appropriate, we take whatever steps necessary to enforce partnership rights in the Courts.
We advise numerous firms in the professional services sector, including lawyers, accountants, surveyors, architects, barristers' chambers, patent agents, doctors and limited partnerships. We are instructed by firms, by practice groups and by individual partners. And we constantly advise on issues relating to partners joining and leaving (on their own and in teams), the merger of professional firms and the conversion of traditional partnerships into limited liability partnerships.
Increasingly, we also help a growing number of firms based outside the UK to set up and develop London offices.
As market leaders, we are active within our own field of expertise: the multi-disciplinary Association of Partnership Practitioners was founded by lawyers at Fox Williams.
In addition to our expertise in partnership law and practice, we provide employment, commercial, immigration, property, dispute resolution and tax expertise tailored for professional services.
