Director, partnership & shareholder disputes

Even with the most carefully drafted shareholder agreements and corporate articles of association, disagreements in the boardroom can turn legal swiftly. Amicable resolution by proposing a remedial board meeting is always preferable – but not always possible.

We intervene in a whole array of boardroom situations: breaches of fiduciary duty, conflicts of interest, contended insolvency, fraudulent conduct, improper conduct by the board, minority shareholder actions, and dismissals or disqualifications of directors.

Rifts in partnerships (professional service firm or other) may occur for all manner of reasons: disagreement as to the firm’s direction, reward or performance management policies, cultural or generational shift, improper behaviour or the destabilisation caused by partner mobility. Mergers can also open sudden gulfs between those who previously worked in harmony.

To fraught, personal disagreements we bring practical, objective advice as to whether to carry on or dissolve and/or separate.
