When executives and co-founders exit a business, whatever the circumstances, it is important to manage the departure on the best terms possible.
We understand that when trusted relationships break down, it can give rise to stressful and time-consuming disputes. Our experts are on hand to provide integrated employment, corporate and litigation advice to businesses and individuals covering all aspects of corporate governance and the working relationship. We will work with you to identify and adopt the best strategy to manage any exit as smoothly as possible.
Our team spans Europe, the US and Asia-Pacific, and we are adept at co-ordinating international litigation and dealing with cross border disputes across a broad range of industry sectors.
We have a wealth of experience advising on shareholder rights and remedies, unfair prejudice and the purchase of shares, and work closely with accountants on share valuation issues. We often act on cases where there is a deadlock between shareholders, and can help take the heat out of the situation by negotiating a shareholder agreement, or alternatively a severance arrangement where one or more shareholders are bought out. We are also experienced in acting for majority shareholders when looking to exit a minority shareholder, often when matters are acrimonious.
There are often various options available when working to resolve your dispute. We can offer methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, but if necessary, we will take cases to trial if this is in your best interests. We are known for our commercial acumen, and clients praise the personal support and understanding we provide, as well as our ability to conclude matters with a win-win result.
