Shareholder Litigation

When friends or colleagues go into business together, all they can see is a bright future. Few think about what should happen when disputes arise or how to resolve them. When disputes do arise, the manner in which they are handled can have a direct impact on the success or failure of the business.

The only call you need to make when business disputes arise

The first goal will be to see if there is any way to bring you and your partners together to keep the business going.  If this isn’t feasible, then the next step would be to to negotiate a buyout of one or other partners or wind down the business.  If all else fails I am prepared to go to court to fight for your interests.  

My background includes disputes between partners, shareholders and owners, and I’ve handled cases in areas from dissolution and buyouts to breach of fiduciary duties and more.

When you need to initiate action regarding a business dispute, you can rely on me to provide the strong, results-oriented representation you need.
