Shareholders

Shareholders agreement on table

At Irwin legal, we recognize that at the core of a shareholders dispute is a fight for control (and the benefits that this control may provide to each shareholder).

There are a number of remedies available to shareholders who believe unfair or improper conduct should be dealt with accordingly. Many of these disputes between shareholders are best handled by one or more parties being “bought out”. This outcome can be reached by undertaking alternative dispute resolution, but there are times when a negotiated solution cannot be achieved – for example the parties may each have a very strong view that it is the other party who should exit. We have the experience and expertise to initiate legal proceedings when necessary to produce an outcome that is unable to be reached through dispute resolution.
