Shareholders litigation

Politeness is the poison of collaboration

Disagreements shareholders can imperil a company's immediate and long-term outlook. Outside of the divorce courts, the most bitter disputes are often between shareholders. Limited companies can bring together relative strangers, and while often these relationships are long and happy, others are punctuated by rows, infidelity and, ultimately, divorce.

Disputes between shareholders are intricate and can involve numerous points of law and punchy court applications. Our business lawyers have extensive experience representing shareholders in the following areas:

  • management disagreements over roles, finances, direction of company
  • violations of shareholder’s rights
  • fraudulent or misleading financial reports
  • misappropriation of company funds
  • financial mismanagement
  • minority shareholder oppression
  • conflict of interests
  • dissolution disputes
  • trade secret infringement
