Shareholder disputes

The need for specialist advice:

Shareholder disputes are often complex, costly and likely to hinder the day-to-day running of the company – so expert advice is essential.

Disputes typically arise from breaches of duties or contracts, minority shareholders feeling they are being unfairly treated, and conflicts of interest.

A regrettable consequence is damage to the company itself, although disputes can sometimes be avoided if clearly drafted articles of association and shareholders agreement are put in place at the outset.

Let our experience make yours that much easier:

At Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall, highly skilled and experienced solicitors seek to avoid court action if at all possible, and negotiate a solution that resolves the dispute, prevents recurrence, and minimises costs.

We have extensive experience and knowledge of advising both majority and minority shareholders, directors and companies in a wide range of disputes.
