Advice on resolving an argument between directors, shareholders or partners.

We pride ourselves on providing a first class service and on our results. We have a wealth of experience in advising on disputes between directors, shareholders and partners across a wide-range of industry sectors. We regularly advise businesses of all sizes from sole-traders and SMEs to large national and international businesses and partnerships, as well as individual directors, shareholders and partners.

We want to understand how your business works so that, together, we formulate the best strategy for resolving the dispute cost effectively and with the best outcome in mind.

Our specialist lawyers have extensive experience and expertise in:

  • “Boardroom” disputes between directors 
  • Shareholder disputes including unfair prejudice (or minority shareholder) claims
  • Partnership disputes
  • Actions relating to breach of directors’ duties
  • Breach of warranty claims, earn-out and completion account disputes
  • Enforcing and resisting enforcement of restrictive covenants in business sale agreements and contracts of employment

Examples of work we have been involved in recently in this area include:

  • Bringing and defending complex high-value claims arising from business sales and purchases for breach of warranty, completion account, deferred consideration and earn-out disputes. 
  • Acting in a professional partnership dispute involving issues of expulsion and breach of duty.
  • Acting in quasi-partnership/minority shareholder actions in major horticultural, renewable energy and recruitment businesses.
  • A claim against a former director of a major UK business for breach of fiduciary duties.
