Director and Shareholder Disputes

Shareholder or directorship disputes are disagreements between those who own shares in your company. If your business has a Shareholder Agreement drawn up, the procedure for resolving disputes will be clear and known to shareholders. In that case, the dispute may be managed early, hopefully without the need for court proceedings.

In the absence of a Shareholder Agreement, the company’s Constitution may be looked to, which sets out the rules about the internal management of the company. If your company does not have a Constitution, then the Companies Act will provide information about avenues for managing the dispute.

As all company disputes are unique and will require different strategies to resolve, it can be beneficial to seek legal advice early. Our commercial attorneys can provide advice and assistance about managing your shareholder dispute so that you can get back to business quickly and with minimal financial disruption.

Barnard Inc. is committed to providing corporate legal services for intelligent and sustainable economic growth and development.
