In Brief

Craig Lawson Craig Lawson

In Brief is a four part series providing no-nonsense commentary on topical issues facing professional services firms and the professionals that practice within them.

The series provides a perspective upon:

  • Allocation of Profit
    A pathway to Greater Certainty
  • Structuring a practice
    Navigating the Maze
  • Structuring for equity participants
    Preserving the Return
  • Partner compliance obligations
    Keeping partners focussed.

Commentary is drawn from members of Grant Thornton’s Professional Services Industry team - either as advisors to professional practices or the equity participants from them. The In Brief series discusses some of the practical issues facing practices and their equity participants – giving insights as to how relevant risks can be appropriately addressed.

Part 3 focuses on the considerations that need to be made when determining an appropriate equity structure designed to preserve practitioner returns.
