Board & Shareholder Disputes


Appropriate forms of resolution

Disputes between directors or shareholders and the Board of a company happen frequently and regularly.

Although many law firms act only for individual directors or shareholders, or for Boards, we are experienced in advising both. We believe this offers us valuable insight into how best to resolve disputes of this nature. Our involvement is often kept quiet as publicity is seldom welcome in these matters.

We are experienced in resolving disputes by mediation or arbitration if appropriate, and if necessary through High Court action. Our specialist lawyers in these matters will offer you commercially focused, pragmatic advice on areas such as:

  • the drafting and interpretation of shareholder agreements
  • acting within the company’s Articles of Association
  • bonus disputes
  • directors’ legal and fiduciary duties
  • whistleblowing
