Although insolvency law and partnership/LLP law are both well-established areas of legal practice in their own right, this is the only text which comprehensively explains and analyses insolvency law as it applies to all three types of business partnership available under English law; general partnerships, limited partnerships and LLPs. Law of Insolvent Partnerships and Limited Liability Partnerships explains the legal framework applicable to insolvent partnerships and LLPs: principally the Insolvent Partnerships Order 1994 and the LLP Regulations 2001 applying and modifying parts of the Insolvency Act 1986, the Companies Act 2006 and the Insolvency Rules. It includes detailed discussion of potential rescue procedures (compositions and arrangements, voluntary arrangements and administration), as well as the various types of receivership (including agricultural receiverships). It then explains and analyses the four possible partnership liquidation procedures (with or without concurrent petitions against partners), the voluntary and compulsory liquidation of LLPs, and the joint bankruptcy procedure which is unique to partnerships. Finally it examines the options for insolvency litigation and disqualification.

This work discusses the formation, regulation and dissolution of partnerships and the consequences of the existence of a partnership, not only for partners within the firm but also for those dealing with a firm or partner from outside. This book covers the essential principles of both partnership law and the law relating to limited liability partnerships. In addition to explaining established principles it explores the unresolved issues in partnership law, including fixed share partnerships and whether partners can be workers, dissolution by acceptance of repudiatory breach, abandonment and mutuality, liability for equitable wrongs, the authority of a partner winding up a partnership, and the availability of equitable or common law remedies for breaches of the partnership agreement. The new edition includes a greatly expanded analysis of limited liability partnerships signifying the growth in importance of this type of entity and the development of a distinct area of law. LLP law is still evolving and combines both corporate and partnership elements which creates legal and practical difficulties. The book considers and provides answers to these problems. It analyses for example, the question as to whether a person can be both a member and an employee of an LLP. Limited partnerships are also considered in detail in response to their recent revival as investment vehicles and recent developments on access to information and derivative actions by limited partners. This book is an indispensable guide to the principles of the law of LLPs and partnerships. Well known for its approachable style it provides an excellent reference work for practitioners and students alike.
