GP Partnership Agreements
A well-drafted and up-to-date partnership agreement is essential for the effective and smooth running of a practice. These agreements should include provisions relating to profit shares, property ownership, retirement, and disputes.
Once a partnership agreement has been agreed, it is essential to keep it up-to-date to ensure that it remains in force, to reflect both changes in the partnership, and changes in the law.
