Creating Pragmatic Outcomes for Business Disputes

Shareholder Disputes

Disputes between shareholders involving disagreements between the shareholders of a company that amount to oppressive conduct and/or a violation of the respective statutes or shareholder agreements. 

These types of issues broadly encompass:

  1. A disagreement over the direction of the corporation.
  2. Financial mismanagement.
  3. A breach of various duties the law has defined and imposed on shareholders.  In essence, obligations that they have to meet but have not met.
  4. Decisions that are oppressive, unfairly prejudicial, or unfairly disregards the shareholder/officer/director or interested 3rd party’s interests.
  5. Deadlock between shareholders in terms of the operations and direction of the corporation.
