Shareholder Issues

Businesses can quickly grind to a halt when issues arise between shareholders. Whatever the disagreement, it is important to resolve the matter as soon as possible to safeguard the future of the business and protect 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 approach encompasses mediation, negotiation and, if necessary, litigation, but our experts will be able to guide you through to the decision that is right for you .
