Many of the most prosperous SMEs and owner managed businesses owe their success to the strong relationship between founding partners or shareholders. However, relationships can break down and often, without some form of impartial intervention, shareholder and partnership disputes can become extremely unpleasant and very acrimonious.

The highly sensitive and complex nature of these disputes often requires swift and proactive action and advice. We have a wealth of experience of dealing with such disputes and have been involved in some landmark cases. Our focus is very much on seeking an early commercial resolution to these disputes. However, if litigation cannot be avoided, the team has the experience, resource and expertise to handle such disputes whether it be an action relating to breach of director duties, the unfair prejudice remedy in section 994 of the Companies Act 2006, a derivative or a personal action or a just and equitable winding up petition.

We can help you with:

  • Breach of director’s duty issues
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Shareholder Disputes
  • Retirement and expulsion issues
  • Share valuations
