How can we help?
To access legal support from just £140 per hour arrange your no-obligation initial consultation to discuss your business requirements.
It is vital that you do not ignore your shareholder dispute. If your dispute is left unresolved it can become personal and emotionally charged, all of which could make it even more difficult and expensive to resolve.
Our shareholder dispute solicitors will work hard to help you resolve your dispute. We will listen to your concerns, provide clear explanations of your legal options, and guide you through the steps you need to take.
PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS AS A SHAREHOLDER
We are committed to fighting your corner and will do everything we can to protect you and your rights as a shareholder. The first step we will take is to assess your situation. We will review any documentation or evidence relating to your dispute. Once we have a better understanding of your position, we will discuss your options with you. We will provide clear and transparent advice and will avoid technical jargon when possible.
We actively encourage mediation and other suitable methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) if we believe it is a suitable way to resolve your dispute (which it often is for shareholder disputes). We will act as facilitators, promoting constructive dialogue between you and the other parties, helping you fix strained relationships and foster a more collaborative environment within the company. Using our expertise, we will help you reach a mutually acceptable agreement, this can come in the form of new safeguards for minority shareholders or a fair commercial settlement allowing the company or someone else to buy back shares. The agreement(s) will serve as legally binding documents, providing clarity and certainty moving forward.
If the other side is unwilling to co-operate and your case does end up going to court, you will be in safe hands. We will proactively defend your rights as a shareholder and will help you navigate the court system. Our solicitors will provide you with regular updates, informing you of any progress that is made during the court proceedings. Litigation can be an effective option if you are looking to remove a shareholder that is unwilling to negotiate or a director that you believe is guilty of misconduct.
Shareholder disputes can be incredibly stressful, causing a lot of worry and tension for everyone involved. That’s why we’ve designed the way we work with you to help resolve the dispute as quickly as possible, before it has a damaging impact on you, your employees, and the company.
