Partnership disputes can arise in a host of circumstances, even when a business is running successfully.

They will often lead to a great deal of disruption and uncertainty for the partners themselves, as well as employees and customers. While in many cases an adequately drafted partnership agreement can help to resolve disputes, there are always unforeseen circumstances that can make it difficult to deal with complex issues. If disputes are not managed and appropriately resolved, the outcome can be damaging to your career, your personal and professional reputation and result in a substantial loss of capital. This is why it is important that you seek expert and practical legal advice.

Expert Partnership Dispute Lawyers in London

Every partnership is unique – the reasons for a dispute may arise out of the specific nature of your business or professional relationship. However, there is a range of common scenarios that will often be the root cause of partnership disputes.


The actions of individual partners will often be considered reflective of your business as a whole. When one partner fails to uphold professional standards, this can have a massive impact on your relationship with customers, clients or other professionals. Misconduct may involve:

  • Being rude or aggressive to partners, employees or customers
  • Substance abuse or addiction issues
  • Fraud – for example, if one partner withdraws money from the business without the other partners’ consent or creates fraudulent clients or accounts
  • Theft
  • Breach of the partnership agreement
  • One partner fails to carry out an appropriate share of the work

This is a particularly common cause of disputes between partners and can come about for several reasons. It might be the case that the nature of your business means that one partner is not qualified or able to do certain types of work undertaken by your company, or that due to evolving economic factors the kind of work they can carry out is no longer as profitable as it once was. More simply, one partner may choose to spend more time away from the business than the other partners think is reasonable. It may also be the case that, due to age or health problems one of the partners is no longer able to carry out their role properly.
