Described by the Legal 500 as “the firm that could and should be instructed on any major or complex case”, we offer clients experience, depth of resource and specialist expertise on the full range of disputes arising between shareholders, directors, joint venture partners and business partners. Our clients include public and private companies, funds organised as limited partnerships, shareholders, individual directors, boards of directors and partnerships spanning a wide range of industry sectors.
Our extensive experience includes acting on claims relating to directors’ breach of fiduciary duties, breach of joint venture agreements, disputes over directors’ and controlling shareholders’ conflicts of interest, disputes between consortium members of an infrastructure project company, calculation of carry-over interest and disagreements about the management and direction of a company or partnership.
Our team is fully aware that director, shareholder and partnership disputes are not only damaging to a business but can be highly emotive. We are experts at resolving these disputes in a collaborative manner, often using mediation as a means to settle matters. However, where necessary, our formidable team of litigators will vigorously pursue or defend individual or class action claims by way of arbitration or court proceedings at all levels.
