In October 2017 Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) LLP was formed through a combination of US firm Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice and the UK-based Bond Dickinson, greatly enhancing the firm’s ability to handle transatlantic partnership matters; a matter that was coordinated within the UK firm by ‘very capable’ practice head Barry Stimpson. The group’s primary clients are law firms, accountants and fund managers, for which the team advises on LLP arrangements, merger projects and a range of fund-related partnership vehicles. Michelle Chance specialises in representation for partnership dispute resolution, where she is ‘especially good at representing individuals’, although she also has significant expertise in advising partnerships and LLPs. Jamie Pass and Richard Collins are also recommended on the contentious side.
