Partnership & Shareholders Dispute Solicitors
Many, if not all, business trade either as a partnership between the founding members or they are incorporated as Limited Liability Company. Many law firm until recently traded as partnership and in many older cases without even a partnership agreement.
If a business operated as partnership, liability of the individual partners is not limited and a party pursuing a claim against partnership can enforce a judgment against individual partner’s personal properties.
To reduce such risks, many founders decide to trade as limited liability partnership or limited liability Company. The term limited means precisely what it says, the liability of the partners and shareholder is limited to the assets of the partnership or the company and one cannot enforce judgments against the partners or shareholders personal assets.
There are often disputes between the partners or the shareholders often regards ownership of the partnership or the company. The relationship between the partners is governed by articles of association, and if these do not exist, the Partnership Act which sets out duties and obligations.
The dispute between shareholders is governed by the Company’s Act and the written constitution.
