Quick Overview

Comprehensive and highly detailed, Twomey on Partnership, 2nd edition, includes practitioner-focused chapters on disputes between partners, litigation by and against partnerships and a commentary on each of the clauses of a typical partnership agreement. Few areas of law are as similar throughout the common law world as partnership law.

This important book analyses not only Irish, English and Scottish partnership cases, but also the rich vein of partnership cases to be found in other common law jurisdictions, and explains how these cases impact upon Irish law.

This new edition has been updated to take account of key Irish cases over the last 17 years, including McAleenan v AIG, Harris v Quigley and Cronin v Kehoe. In addition, it includes analysis of any foreign (particularly English) cases of particular relevance. A new chapter has been added which deals with the Legal Services Regulation Act 2015 and its provisions on partnerships, including limited liability partnerships.

While the key partnership acts (the Partnership Act 1890, the Limited Partnerships Act 1907 and the Investment Limited Partnerships Act 1994) have not changed to any significant degree since publication of the first edition, the Irish Government has approved changes to the Investment Limited Partnerships Act 1994 and this is dealt with in the book. Other analysis of legislation in the book has been been updated to reflect the changes since the first edition, in particular the material relating to Companies Act 2014.
