Wildy Simmonds & Hill
Publication date:


This book provides a comprehensive and comparative explanation of the law relating to all three types of business partnership available under English law; general partnerships, limited partnerships (including private fund limited partnerships) and LLPs. It explains the applicable law from formation of the business to termination, including chapters on the availability or otherwise of legal personality, duties of partners and members, management issues, property and finance, taxation, litigation and insolvency. This new edition of Partnership and LLP Law is fully updated and includes coverage of the Legislative Reform (Private Fund Limited Partnerships) Order 2017 which introduces a new form of limited partnership, the private fund limited partnership, and the new provisions requiring certain partnerships and LLPs to maintain a register of persons with significant control over the business. It also includes a discussion of the impact of v Clyde & Co v Bates van Winkelhof on employment and worker status of partners and LLP members. Other recent cases such as Flanagan v Liontrust Investment Partners and Inversiones Frieira SL and another v Colyzeo Investors are also discussed. The law relating to each of the three types of partnership is set out clearly and concisely to enable the busy practitioner to understand, or refresh their understanding of, partnership and LLP law. It will also enable those with knowledge or experience of one type of partnership to understand the similarities and differences of the other types.
