Judgment in an LLP test was handed down by Lightman J on 6th April 2006: Re Rogers Deceased [2006] EWHC 753 (Ch). The purpose of the test case was to determine whether members of an LLP (which had succeeded to a solicitors firm) could accept an appointment as executors in a will. The judge held that, on the terms of the particular appointment clause, profit sharing members of the LLP could accept the appointments. The judgment is also interesting in that it (implicitly) acknowledges that a person can be both a member of an LLP and employed by it.
