Unfortunately being in business can be tough and not all partners, directors and shareholders will see eye to eye every time.
When disputes occur they can have a significant impact on the business. To ensure there is no long term detrimental impact, it is crucial that they are resolved quickly and effectively. Internal disputes typically involve issues over the future of a business, allegations of misconduct, arguments over expulsion provisions, or the possible winding up of a business.
These disputes often escalate because advice isn’t obtained early on to confirm the legal rights of each party, leaving business owners unclear of the best way forward.
GA Solicitors regularly advises on partnership and shareholder/director disputes across a variety of professional and business sectors and understands the commercial pressures affecting businesses at these times.
If appropriate, the team will assist with mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This can help to not only keep costs down, but also maintain a more civil relationship with other members of the business. Where this is not possible and a stronger show of force is needed, then we will also have you covered.
