Advice on director and shareholder disputes

All kinds of disputes can break out among the directors and shareholders of a business – differences over direction, personality clashes, misconduct. The real danger is that they disrupt the task of running the company. If you find yourself in this situation, you need to get urgent advice.

  • Acting for a minority shareholder against the majority shareholder in an unfair prejudice claim. We resolved the dispute through mediation 
  • Advising a majority shareholder facing an unfair prejudice claim. We agreed a settlement involving a share buyback 
  • Representing a director of a deadlocked company. We negotiated the division of the business into two equal units operating in different areas, underpinned by a three-year non-competition agreement
