Shareholder Issues

If you are a shareholder of a company and you experience a difference of opinion with your shareholders, it is important to resolve the matter as soon as possible to safeguard the future of the business and to protect your interests.

Disputes can arise over a range of issues, including the future strategy of the business, director’s remuneration, payment of dividends and bonuses. Minority shareholders often feel shut out by the majority shareholders. Majority shareholders may also be saddled with a shareholders agreement which cedes control of the company

Whatever the disagreement, it is essential to involve specialist solicitors at the earliest possible stage of such a disagreement. Our Dispute Resolution team deals with a wide range of such disputes through mediation, negotiation and, if necessary, litigation.   Our expert advice will help you decide on the best course of action, advise you on the timescales, the likely outcome, as well as the likely costs.
