Dissolution of Scottish Partnerships: Laying the Ghost to Rest?

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


This talk considered both conceptual and practical problems caused by the immediate impact of dissolution of Scottish partnerships. Such dissolution acts to terminate the legal personality of the partnership, leaving ongoing contracts and ownership of property in doubt. The issues were explored and a recent Inner House case, Sheveleu v Brown and Ducker was critically analysed. In the conclusion, it was suggested that the Inner House solution exhibits all the usual problems of judge-made law. It was suggested that reform can only be achieved by legislation rather than by judicial development.
