Partnership disputes

Disputes can arise within partnerships that can often be complex and require an understanding of the underlying rights and duties between partners.

The position will depend upon whether the partnership is unlimited and governed by the Partnership Act 1890 or a more recently permitted Limited Liability Partnership. The answer may be affected by the terms of any written agreement governing the partnership.
