Partnerships

Drawing on cross-disciplinary expertise from lawyers in our corporate, employment, tax and dispute resolution practices, Teacher Stern’s partnership team advises partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships and individuals across the full spectrum of partnership matters.

Our corporate team regularly advises on the formation and structuring of partnerships and LLPs, as well as on drafting and negotiating partnership and LLP agreements. In doing so, they work closely with members of our tax team who are usually involved at an early stage of the process to ensure that the overall partnership structure works from a tax perspective.

We frequently advise on the admission and retirement of partners, exit strategies, and the termination of partnerships. Where partnerships are wound up on an insolvent basis, our dispute resolution and insolvency teams can provide expert advice on priorities, entitlements and risks.

Our employment team has significant experience in advising partnerships and individuals alike in connection with the enforcement of restrictive covenants.
