PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES

We have over many years developed an expertise in advising professional services firms where we have acted for (amongst others) solicitors, accountants, chartered surveyors, dentists, doctors, architects, opticians, vets, estate agents and independent financial advisors.

The directors of GBH Law have all, at some point in their careers to date, been shareholders, partners, salaried partners or members of a limited liability partnership so they have first-hand experience of what it means to be a partner/member in a professional firm and what issues can arise, particularly when a partner leaves the practice.

We are frequently instructed by individual partners who are either encountering difficulties within their firm or about to take up an offer of partnership or membership. They tell us they find us sympathetic and understanding whilst providing helpful and pragmatic advice.

Our work regularly includes forming limited liability partnerships, preparing partnership and limited liability partnership members’ agreements, advice on disputes between partners and members, incorporation of partnership businesses, dealing with succession issues, disposal and acquisition of partnership businesses and general advice on the legal issues which arise when running a professional practice.

I have worked with Denise on numerous deals in the professional services space especially law firms. Denise works tirelessly to ensure deals and transactions progress smoothly and is often able to make those delicate discussions that often arise appear straightforward and therefore overcome the hurdles that sometimes can get in the way. Clients and contacts always speak highly of Denise and she rightly has the reputation of a “go to” adviser in the professional services arena.
