Business Separation and Shareholder Disputes

We are specialists in commercial dispute resolution and commercial risk mitigation.

Disputes are inevitable in business. Our expert team specialises in advising shareholders, partners and company boards in complex disputes between equity holders.

This extends to negotiating and documenting exit and separation agreements and litigating complex shareholder, oppression, partnership and trust disputes.

Our dispute resolution lawyers work with our clients to formulate a strategy in anticipation of a potential dispute including options to mitigate the risk of future litigation. The focus is always on providing commercial, practical and timely solutions.

“They’re well known to produce results. They’re focused, and strategically all over it. A good lawyer is strategic, provides clarity up front, and sets out a clear direction. We are aware of the pathway laid out from the start and how we’re going to reach the desired outcome.”
