What is 'Pure Partners'

'Pure Partners' is the brand under which the member firms of Pure Partners International Ltd (PPIL) operate and provide professional services. Together, these firms form the Pure Partner network. ‘Pure Partners’ is often used to refer either to individual firms within the Pure Partner network or to several or all of them collectively.

In many parts of the world, accounting, legal and financing firms are required by law to be locally owned and independent. Although regulatory attitudes on this issue are changing, Pure Partner member firms do not operate as a corporate multinational. The Pure Partner network is not a global partnership, a single firm, or a multinational corporation.

For these reasons, the Pure Partner network consists of firms which are separate legal entities. The firms that make up the network are committed to working together to provide quality service offerings for clients throughout the world. Firms in the Pure Partner network are members in, or have other connections to, Pure Partners International Ltd (PPIL), an English private company limited by shares.

PPIL does not practise accountancy, law, mortgage advice or provide services to clients. Rather its purpose is to act as a coordinating entity for member firms in the Pure Partner network. Focusing on key areas such as strategy, brand, and risk and quality, the Network Leadership Team and Board of PPIL develop and implement policies and initiatives to achieve a common and coordinated approach among individual firms where appropriate. Member firms of PPIL can use the Pure Partner name and draw on the resources and methodologies of the Pure Partner network. In addition, member firms may draw upon the resources of other member firms and/or secure the provision of professional services by other member firms and/or other entities. In return, member firms are bound to abide by certain common policies and to maintain the standards of the Pure Partner network as put forward by PPIL.

The Pure Partner network is not one international partnership and Pure Partner member firms are not otherwise legal partners with each other. Many of the member firms have legally registered names which contain “Pure Partners”, however there is no ownership by PPIL. A member firm cannot act as agent of PPIL or any other member firm. A member firm cannot obligate PPIL or any other member firm. A member firm is liable only for its own acts or omissions and not those of PPIL or any other member firm. Similarly, PPIL cannot act as an agent of any member firm, cannot obligate any member firm, and is liable only for its own acts or omissions.
