At Actons, we advise directors and shareholders on their rights and about the resolution of disputes with their colleagues.
In owner-managed businesses, disputes between shareholders or directors may also involve disputes between friends or family members. It is important to retain a sense of perspective and to ensure a cost-efficient approach. It’s also important to ensure that value in your business is preserved rather than destroyed by the dispute.
We can also put you in touch with other professionals to help you ensure that all loose ends are tied up when a director or shareholder leaves the business.
