Company and partnership disputes
Disputes relating to partners, shareholders or business acquisitions are disruptive, and negatively impact on productivity and profit.
Our commercial dispute resolution team have significant experience in these matters.
We can guide you through them so that you can focus on your business.
We have acted for a wide range of clients from small businesses to large enterprises, in respect of shareholder and partnership disputes ranging from deadlock to minority shareholder prejudice.
In addition, we regularly act in respect of post-sale disputes such as allegations of mis-selling a business, breach of warranty claims and a failure to pay deferred consideration.
Our recent experience includes:
- Acting for the remaining director and a 50% shareholder in a £30m dispute against the estate of the other 50% shareholder, defending claims of unfair prejudice.
- Acting for the shareholder of a marketing business following the directors (who were the remaining shareholders) setting up a competing business.
- Acting for a company founder in a long-running claim (involving injunctive proceedings) by the company in respect of a claim alleging acting in completion on breach of restrictive covenants.
