Shareholder disputes, director disputes and partnership disputes can be both disruptive and costly. It is therefore important to get to the heart of the dispute quickly with a view to resolving it. The position of a particular shareholder, director or partner will be greatly improved, and provide the best chance of preserving the value of the shareholder’s interest.
Shareholder disputes are different to many other disputes because often the parties have worked closely together for some time. As lawyers, we seek to approach these matters with a degree of sensitivity.
Examples of disputes between shareholders and directors include:
Mediation is a useful tool in assisting the matter to resolve quickly and the possibility should always be explored. This is often where lawyers can be useful in guiding the parties through the legal complexity of the legal issues in a conciliatory way.

In the event that litigation is necessary, our lawyers are savvy and experienced in litigation relating to disputes relating to shareholders, directors and partners of various types of businesses – whether it be in prosecution or protection of your rights.
Either way, you can be assured that your case will be handled with high degree of organisation, diligence and finesse when we negotiate your behalf.
