Partnership & Company Directorship
Dispute Representation & Resolution Services
We negotiate outcomes to prevent the parties from resorting to the costs and imponderables of litigation. We are happy to be engaged by partnerships, exiting senior construction and planning lawyers or company directors to represent and facilitate resolution and closure. We understand that partnership and company directorship disputes and terminations are very exacting financially and emotionally. Great skill and sensitivity is required to navigate from discord to accord. We have these skills.
The service is designed to effect resolution and rapid closure to enable the parties to put their differences behind them so that they can move on.
We provide lawyers and legal representation for senior construction and planning lawyers or directors who:
- are in dispute with one another and wish to resolve same
- are intent on leaving a partnership or company directorship
- want to enforce their legal rights on exiting a partnership
- wish to terminate the employment of a non performing partner or director
- need partnership pay outs or entitlements negotiated
- need protection, support and closure with minimal angst and disquiet

Preparation and Drafting of Partnership Agreements
Some of us have been in partnerships for nigh on twenty years and having represented senior construction and planning lawyers embroiled in partnership disputes, Kim Lovegrove and Justin Cotton are intimately aufait with all of the machinations and permutations of partnerships.
The best way to ensure that partnership and directorship disagreements do not deteriorate into disputes is to get the partnership and directorship agreement right in the first place.
Kim Lovegrove and Justin Cotton are able to draft partnership agreements that clearly enunciate the obligations and the rights of the parties to a partnership or directorship. We prepare agreements that protect the fabric of partnership and provide clear responsibility demarcation and KPIs. All of which is designed to minimize discord and misunderstanding. We are all well versed in designing exit clauses and dispute resolution clauses that assist with the peaceful and professional dissolution of partnership if and when this eventuates.
We have negotiated and resolved partnership disputes involving: engineering companies, property joint venture disputants, building partnership disputes, and solicitor partnership dissolutions.
