Straight-talking advice on complex business structures
LLPs and partnerships face a unique range of issues that require a very distinct approach. We understand the challenges you face, not just because we’ve helped many of our partnership clients overcome the same challenges, but because we are one too. At Memery Crystal our cross-departmental team of specialist lawyers advise both UK and international professional services firms, brokers, traders, asset managers and real estate joint ventures.
Our expertise covers the lifecycle of the business structure from set-up and management to implementing sometimes complex profit sharing and incentive arrangements, dispute resolution and exit strategies. We combine our in-depth knowledge of the partnerships structure with our commercial outlook to provide our clients with clear and innovative solutions.
We advise on the drafting and amending of partnership agreements, including the admission and termination of members and corporate governance issues. We also have extensive expertise in guiding our clients through mergers, acquisitions and disposals.
Our clients look to us for advice on partnership and employment law, tax, data protection, regulatory matters, and investment expertise.
