Partnership Formation

When it comes to running a business, partnerships can be an excellent way to share the responsibility and workload. As solicitors, we can provide valuable guidance on the different types of partnerships available, including general and limited liability partnerships. A general partnership involves a shared responsibility between two or more individuals, while an LLP offers limited liability protection for each partner. We understand the intricacies of these partnerships and can assist in setting them up legally and effectively to ensure a successful partnership for years to come. Trust us to provide professional advice and support for your business endeavors.

What is partnership formation?

Where two or more people agree to share responsibility for a business, they may decide to form a partnership. The main types of partnership are general and limited liability partnership (LLP). Similarly to company formation, an LLP must be registered with Companies House.

Our Service

Initially, our expert solicitors can meet with you, obtain full details about your business and advise you on the different partnership options available to you, including which may be best suited to your business needs.

In the event that you would like to form an LLP, we can draft the application form and submit the same with Companies House.

We can also help with preparing a partnership agreement, which outlines how the partnership will be conducted, as well as the rights and obligations of each partner, to prevent future disputes of misunderstandings.

What people say about us

We were recommended to use Poole Alcock and in particular, Monisha by our neighbours, who found her to be very approachable.

Throughout our relationship, from the initial meeting through to completion, the communications were always first class and easily understood. Monisha was knowledgeable in the subject we approached her with and was quickly able to conclude the documentation and business we had.

I would not hesitate to recommend Poole Alcock, and Monisha herself, if asked.
