This is a set that exclusively focuses on partnership law and has all the expertise required, whether it be on the advisory, drafting or litigation fronts. All manner of partnership clients are catered for, although there is a strong emphasis on those drawn from the professional practices. Members here act for both firms and individual partners, and offer advice on everything from restrictive covenants, the break-up of LLPs and disputed issues of construction to the dissolution of traditional partnerships and the removal of misbehaving partners.

Client service:

"The clerk, Tyroon Win, is first class and seemingly always available to assist."

Strengths:

Roderick I'Anson Banks
Has focused exclusively on partnership and LLP law since the 1980s and is consistently applauded by sources for his exhaustive and unsurpassed knowledge of the area. Although respected as a courtroom opponent of great tactical skill, he is nevertheless distinguished by his ability to find alternatives to litigation. He acts for solicitors' firms and individual solicitors, and also assists clients from professional services and family-owned structures with partnership disputes and issues.
"A leading authority on partnership law, who has extensive hands-on experience and particular expertise in a wide range of disputes concerning good faith issues." "He is renowned as the repository of all knowledge relating to general partnerships." "His reputation is second to none and he covers every aspect of partnership law."
Recent work: Acted in the case of Lawlor v Medivet Group Ltd, a major dispute concerning the construction of individual partnership agreements and whether those agreements had been varied by conduct.

Strengths:

Simon Jelf
A specialist in partnership matters for many years and highly recommended for both contentious and advisory matters, particularly those affecting solicitors or trading partnerships. He also offers specialised knowledge of medical partnership issues and of questions of LLP formation and dissolution.
"Very responsive, practical and commercial. He is great at covering all the bases so that the most prudent course is taken. Simon handles highly sensitive issues with great aplomb."
