When are Shareholder Disputes Likely to Occur?

There are a wide range of scenarios that can lead to shareholder disputes. From the outset, we recommend that companies have a shareholders’ agreement in place to help address and resolve disputes quickly. However, we appreciate that there will be circumstances where no agreement has been established or where a dispute cannot be resolved by reference to the shareholders’ agreement. We regularly advise clients on disputes relating to:

  • Boardroom decisions
  • Removal of a director or shareholder
  • Commercial strategies and business structures
  • Exit and retirement packages
  • Ending or dissolving commercial relationships

Our Areas of Expertise

We will work closely with you to advise on commercial solutions in areas such as:

Directors Duties and Claims for Misfeasance

Our solicitors are highly experienced in bringing and defending claims for misfeasance. Directors have a duty of care to their company in exchange for the protections afforded by limited liability and, should a breach of their fiduciary duty occur, a claim for misfeasance may be initiated. We can provide support for directors and shareholders throughout this process in a timely fashion to protect your personal position and that of your company.

Unfair Prejudice Petitions and Derivative Claims

We have many years of experience acting on behalf of minority shareholders and firms where allegations have been made regarding unfairly prejudicial conduct. We can provide robust and proactive guidance if you believe your interests as a shareholder, or the interests of a group of shareholders, have been detrimentally affected by the conduct of other shareholders in the company.

Injunctive Proceedings and Restrictive Covenants

Our lawyers are available to act immediately on your behalf both in bringing and defending such proceedings. Working with colleagues from across our commercial team, your solicitor can quickly provide technical advice to help you achieve the best commercial result.
