Paul’s background is that of a conventional corporate and commercial lawyer. Over the course of the last eleven years, he has developed a specialism in the various uses of limited liability partnerships (“LLPs”) (for example in real estate joint venture and renewable energy project structuring), general partnerships (whether as trading vehicles or as components in broader corporate structures) and Scottish limited partnerships (“SLPs”). He regularly deals with SLPs, for example, when they are used:

  • in private equity or real estate main fund structuring;
  • as main fund or carried interest/feeder fund vehicles;
  • as components in structures aimed at indirect investment in high value real estate assets; or
  • for insertion into the group structures of listed companies (whether aimed at facilitating viable acquisition structures for further expansion, creating a more efficient management and operational structure or otherwise).

Paul's dedication to client work ensures that he is able to complete deals as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.


Sources describe him as "very responsive" and a "sensible chap to deal with."
