Shareholder Disputes

Shareholders of a small business corporation are often related parties or even family members. There may come a time when a shareholder will want to exit the corporation and sell his or her shares and move on to other ventures. Things may become contentious, embroiling the shareholders in a dispute that will likely obstruct any effective business management. What can you do?

How to Handle a Shareholder Dispute

Legal representation is most often required. With our knowledge of corporate law, we will guide you through the process of dispute resolution. Typically, there is an arbitration clause in the shareholder agreement that governs the resolution of the dispute. Where such clauses are missing, we turn to the by-laws and other constating documents of the corporation to determine the rules for bringing closure to a dispute, or negotiate in good faith to find a valuation of the shares that is accurate.

In the event of a shareholder’s dispute, we have the creative solutions and the experience to resolve the dispute in the most efficient and cost-effective means possible. Our knowledge of corporate law will assist you through the shareholder dispute process to obtain an outcome that is most beneficial to you.
