Corporate Disputes
  1. Corporate Disputes

    We have extensive experience of disputes arising out of corporate acquisitions and disposals, and as between private company shareholders.

    We act for both sellers and buyers in relation to breach of warranty and tax claims, and we also advise on expert determination procedures where the parties have chosen to incorporate them.

    We regularly advise in relation to claims by or against fellow shareholders, including minority shareholder claims, and claims against directors. Where possible, however, we will provide advice on disputes concerning business ownership as they are emerging in order to minimise the risk of claims.

    In all such claims, where appropriate we work closely with accountancy, valuation, tax (including foreign tax) and other relevant experts with whom we have built strong relationships.

    Working with the team was an experience where we always felt confident and comfortable that our interests were being looked after. The quality of the legal analysis was exceptionally high.
