From the beginning of his practice Piers Feltham has acted in partnership disputes, the first of which related to a firm of minicab drivers, and the most recent to a substantial firm of solicitors. He also advises in relation to partnership formation, drafts partnership agreements, and undertakes drafting work in relation to the establishment of shareholder agreements and joint ventures.
He has argued in Court issues such as whether a partnership agreement has been made at all, what the terms of partnership agreements were and how they are to be interpreted.
The expense and labour of the taking of a full partnership account is to be avoided if possible but when former partners have been unable to resolve their differences Piers has on a number of occasions acted in the taking of partnership accounts by a Chancery Master over days to weeks in Court.
Piers has also advised and acted in both the setting up and the falling apart of joint ventures, particularly in relation to property development, in particular where constructive trust and estoppel issues have arisen.
