Partnership, Director and Shareholder Disputes

Disputes & Debts

Partnership and shareholder agreements

Obtaining legal advice and assistance early on will enable you to minimise pain and avoid damage to your business.

At Marsden Rawsthorn we can assist and advise in dealing with negotiations with your business partners or co-directors and, if required, deal with mediation or court proceedings in order to resolve your dispute.

And if you’re in need of a partnership agreement, shareholders’ agreement or articles of association, we can also help.

We deal with the following:-

Director Disputes

These can arise:-

  • When a company’s action cannot be agreed;
  • When a Director is in breach of their duties causing damage to the Company; or
  • Where a Director needs to be removed.

Shareholder Disputes

These are often intertwined with Director Disputes. Shareholders can take legal action if their shareholding is being unfairly prejudiced.

Considering the Shareholders’ Agreement with you is key as might The Articles of Association.

We prioritise your objectives and will always consider with you whether it is better to negotiate or to litigate.

Partnership Disputes

If you have a Partnership Agreement we will consider that with you and if not, we can advise you about the Partnership Act 1890 which would then govern the legal relationship you as a partner would have.

For free initial advice please call us on Freephone 0800 294 4410.
