21. A Practitioner's Guide to The Partnership Act
Date:
Thursday 30 November 2017
Time:
05:45pm - 07:15pm
Speaker:
Stephen Chan (Partner, Harper Macleod LLP)
Seminar Details:

The Partnership Act 1890, the governing legislation for partnerships, has been in existence for other well over 100 years with little in the way of amendment. However, in today's modern age with other choices such as companies and LLPs, it is surprising how many businesses still operate as a partnership. It is not uncommon to find many small family businesses, professional services firms, restaurant and fast food outlets and retail businesses still run as partnerships. The seminar will cover the main sections of the Partnership Act 1890 which a practitioner should be aware of together with some anecdotal stories highlighting pitfalls which a practitioner should be aware of.

Stephen Chan is a partner in the Corporate team of Harper Macleod LLP and has been heavily involved in advising on partnerships under the 1890 Act, putting in place partnership agreements, advising on partnership disputes and dissolution of partnerships. Stephen is also a keen writer on Partnership law related matters, having contributed to the APP newsletter on Limited Partnerships and made two submissions to DBEIS, the first on its consultation on bringing Scottish Limited Partnerships within the PSC regime and the second on its Review of Limited Partnership Law. Stephen is also writing "A Practical Guide to Partnership Law" for Thomson Reuters which is expected to be published in 2018.
