Disputes | Partnerships & Shareholder Disputes
Resolving disputes within partnerships often requires sensitivity and a clear understanding of the expectations and needs of the parties.
We have dealt with partnership disputes for professionals and businesses including solicitors, accountants, surveyors, dentists, cleaning contractors, farmers, wholesalers and retailers.
Mediation can be used effectively where the parties wish to avoid court proceedings and preserve a relationship following the break-up of the partnership.
A mainstay of our practice involves resolving disputes between shareholders or joint venture partners.
The souring of any business relationship or the occurrence of events which were not predicted at the outset will generate large volumes of contentious communications (made more difficult by the dominance of e-mail) and will focus on often complex underlying agreements. Resolving disputes between shareholders often requires sensitivity and a clear understanding of the expectations and needs of the parties. We are experienced in managing these issues to produce advantageous settlements outside court or robust presentations in court.
