Whatever the size of your business, and whatever your area of expertise, disputes between directors, shareholders and partners can have a crippling and devastating effect on your organisation, as well as on the individuals involved.
Inevitably they involve allegations against former colleagues, and as a result, emotions often run high.
We are experienced in dealing with a wide range of management disputes - the removal of directors following alleged breaches of duty; warring shareholders who cannot work together but who each want to retain control of the business; fraud; misrepresentation. These disputes come in many guises.
We are used to acting for businesses of all shapes and sizes, and for the individual. We have helped business owners who were excluded from their own businesses, and multinational organisations who needed to remove people. Rest assured, whatever your situation, we will have seen it before, and we will be able to help you resolve the issues you face.
We appreciate that time is money, and that any dispute of this nature is an unwelcome distraction from the day to day operation of a business. We will work with you to find the most cost effective and speedy resolution to the problem, so that you can get back to what you do best.
