Shareholder Disputes

We offer pragmatic, strategic and commercial advice on all aspects of partnership, company and shareholder law.

The breakdown of relations within a partnership or between the directors and shareholders of a company can be as acrimonious as going through a bitter divorce, particularly in the case of informal ‘quasi-partnerships’ or family run companies. Partnership, company and shareholder disputes can arise from a variety of circumstances: you may be a private company shareholder facing attack by a minority; a minority shareholder unhappy with treatment by other shareholders; a listed company concerned about activism and disruption; a director uncomfortable with specific decisions; or a board of directors facing a claim. 

Whatever the situation, you will benefit from our practical experience of avoiding and solving shareholder and partnership disputes. Our team has over 25 years’ experience of expertly dealing with these types of dispute not only in a strategic, commercial and practical manner, but with a bespoke, personal approach that is a refreshing alternative to conventional business law. 

Rather than treating all such claims in the ordinary course of commercial litigation, we understand the personal and often sensitive nature of shareholder disputes. We work with you to resolve these conflicts by providing carefully considered, proportionate, and cost-effective options. We pride ourselves on our track record of having consistently achieved the best results for our clients.
