Disputes between shareholders occur for a number of reasons.  Of course the best option is for the shareholders to reach a settlement or mediation between them, however if all else fails it will be necessary to commence legal action in the Courts. Whichever option you decide to take, we can advise you along the way to make sure you receive what you are entitled to. Our solicitors are able to advise you whether you are a minority or majority shareholder.

Examples of disputes are;

• Breach of director’s duties;

• Dividends;

• Salaries;

• Company’s strategy and management;

• Business targets;

• Exclusion from meetings;

• Breaches of shareholding agreements or partnership agreements.
