PARTNER PERFORMANCE AND CONDUCT
We advise partners and LLP members on allegations of misconduct or underperformance. For many such partners there will be no prior indication of any concerns or issues about their performance or conduct and this can be a cause of great stress and anxiety to them. We advise our clients on the legal and tactical handling and response to such allegations and on the range of commercial outcomes potentially available to them.
Many such disputes will be cross-border and we have extensive experience in working with overseas lawyers who are experts in advising partners and LLP members on performance and conduct issues in their jurisdiction.
We have vast experience in assisting such partners in negotiating their exit on a confidential and amicable basis.
