Position

Partner. Paul has developed a specialism over the last 10 years in the various uses of limited liability partnerships (“LLPs”) (for example in renewable energy project and joint venture structuring), general partnerships (whether as trading vehicles or as vehicles for wealth preservation for high net worth individuals) and Scottish limited partnerships (“SLPs”). He regularly deals with SLPs, for example, when they are used:-

  • in private equity or real estate fund structuring, as main fund or carried interest/feeder fund vehicles;
  • as components in structures used for indirect investment in real estate, particularly in relation to large scale and often landmark commercial properties in central London; or
  • as components in the corporate groups of listed companies in advance of multi-million $/€ acquisitions or pursuant to free-standing reorganisations (whether aimed at facilitating viable acquisition structures for further expansion, creating a more efficient management and operational structure for non-US group entities or otherwise).
