At Bloomsbury Law, our shareholder disputes solicitors London represent clients in connection with:
- disputes within partnerships;
- limited liability partnerships;
- companies including minority shareholder; and
- misfeasance actions.
If a dispute arises between shareholders, the next most important legal principle for any shareholder to understand is Section 994 of the Companies Act 2006. Section 994 of the Companies Act 2006 states:-
‘A member of a company may apply to the court… for an order… on the ground that the company’s affairs are being or have been conducted in a manner that is unfairly prejudicial to the interests of its members generally or of some part of its members…”
We always seek to resolve shareholder disputes swiftly and amicably without the involvement of the Courts, as we appreciate that none of our clients wish to be involved in costly and lengthy shareholder litigation. However, in situations where an amicable solution is not possible, we will field a tenacious team to fight for our client’s rights with tactical awareness. At an early stage, to save costs, we can provide mediation with our expert mediation solicitors.
