Charles Fussell & Co LLP is instructed in relation to a partnership dispute arbitration

Charles Fussell & Co LLP has been instructed, alongside SJ Berwin LLP, to advise an LLP member caught in the middle of the deadlocked executive committee of a London-based investment fund. The dispute centres on the level of support required for a particular measure that one party believes contrary to its interests, and also involves questions regarding the permissibility of outside activities by an LLP member. The dispute is expected to be subject to arbitration.

The case will raise interesting points of law on the scope of LLP members’ duties and the construction of investment funds’ deeds, meaning it may prove of interest to anyone dealing with the ever-increasing number of partnership disputes in such institutions.
