Partnership and Shareholder Dispute Solicitors

It is not uncommon for partners and shareholders to dispute. Still, when these issues escalate, it is essential to seek the advice of an experienced and knowledgeable solicitor who can advise on appropriate outcomes. Working to resolve these disputes efficiently and conclusively is essential to the longevity of the business and its reputation.

For shareholders and partners, there are a variety of issues that we can assist in resolving, including:

  • Shareholder disputes.
  • Shareholder agreements.
  • Partnership disputes.
  • Breach of warranty claims, earn-out and completion account disputes following a business’s sale.
  • Enforcing and resisting restrictive covenants in business sale agreements and employment contracts.

Solicitor for Shareholder Disputes

Disputes between shareholders and partners typically arise when there are disagreements surrounding business management and operations. To prevent such issues from arising, it is strongly advisable to have a bespoke and comprehensive shareholder agreement in place.

A shareholder agreement will include relevant procedures and guidance bespoke to the business’s shareholders. The agreement will ensure that any disputes that arise can be handled efficiently and effectively, reducing the potential consequential outfall.

Partnership Disputes

When a partner or shareholder dispute arises, it is advisable to consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR) before taking the matter to court. The most common forms of ADR include mediation, arbitration or adjudication. In this case, the two parties will be joined by a neutral third party who will help to resolve the matter (there are slight variations depending on the ADR method).

If the case cannot be resolved via ADR, it may be necessary to take the matter to court. Since this situation means there is no room for negotiation, it is best to speak to a trusted solicitor with experience in both business law and litigation, giving you the best chance of a favourable outcome.
