The Partnership, LLP and LLC Law Forum is pleased to host its 5th Annual Conference in conjunction with the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School. The Conference aims to bring together all those with an interest in partnerships, LLPs, LLCs and other alternative forms of business organisation in the UK and overseas. 

The following speakers have provisionally confirmed:

• Corinne Staves (Maurice Turnor Garner) – partnership and LLP structures
• Caroline Field (Fox & Partners) - restrictive covenants in a partnership context, with a specific focus on developments in relation to LLPs
• Nic Clarke (HMRC) – partnership/LLP tax developments
• Victoria Griffiths (BEIS) - update on limited partnership and register reform proposal
• Professor Laura Macgregor and Jonathan Hardman (University of Edinburgh) - LLPs
• David Leask (investigative journalist) - developments in UK limited partnerships

Proposals are invited for further papers on any aspect of the law and/or practice of partnerships, LLPs or other alternative forms of business organisations, in the UK or overseas. This may include related areas such as partnership/LLP/LLC tax, employment, property, corporate social responsibility etc. The usual format is a 20 minute presentation accompanied by slides or a handout, followed by an opportunity for questions. However, proposals for panel discussions or other formats as welcome, as are proposals for joint papers. We endeavour to be as inclusive and welcoming as possible.

Proposals should specify:
i) names of the speaker(s),
ii) their firm/university/other institutional affiliation,
iii) their contact details including email address, and
iv) the topic area(s).
If the proposal is accepted, we will ask you for a title. Shortly before the conference, we will also require an abstract/summary of the paper, and any accompanying slides/handout. You do not need to supply a full copy of the paper.

It is intended that the Conference will be an in-person event.

Proposals should be emailed with the subject line ‘Partnership Conference 2022 – call for papers’ to Elspeth Berry at no later than 19 May 2022. Anyone wishing to make an informal inquiry ahead of submission of their proposal is welcome to do so.

We aim to confirm acceptance of papers by 26 May 2022. Conference registration will open in June and all speakers will need to register, but reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

We look forward to receiving your proposals, and meeting you at the Conference.

Elspeth Berry
