Director and Shareholders Disputes

Director and Shareholders Disputes

Shareholder and Director disputes usually arise as a result of a breakdown of trust within a company. If problems are not addressed in the early stages, they can quickly develop into more serious disputes and can cause significant disruption to the everyday functionality of the business.

Farleys Solicitors have a professional team of commercial dispute solicitors who have a great deal of experience in this complex and technical area of law.

Types of Shareholders and Directors Disputes

Our commercial dispute solicitors specialise in dealing with:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Failing to act in good faith or in the best interests of the company
  • Acting outside of the powers granted by the company’s articles
  • Failing to avoid conflicts of interest
  • Making a secret profit
  • Minority shareholder claims / Derivative claims
  • Commercial fraud
  • Company dissolution

Resolving Disputes in a Swift and Cost-Effective Manner

Disputes can be resolved quickly if the correct approach is adopted. At Farleys, we will establish the route of the problem efficiently and sensitively and aim to resolve the dispute as swiftly as possible. Protecting the interests of the business is of paramount importance in these situations and as such, Mediation and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution may be the best course of action. Our experienced solicitors will discuss all the options available to you and will always provide a clear fee estimate at the outset so you are fully aware of the financial implications.

Our lawyers will always strive to ensure that any settlement is favourable to you. Alternatively, if the matter goes to trial, we will take decisive and robust action in achieving the best outcome for you in court.
