Director Disputes

It is not unusual for directors and shareholders to disagree, but what happens when a matter cannot be resolved? We act for both directors and companies in director disputes where agreement cannot be reached. We start by finding out if it is a straightforward disagreement, or if directors have acted unlawfully, in breach of their contractual duties. We will work with you to explore the best available options and the consequences of each route. Removing a director may be your only option, and if so, we will guide you through the process. There are several ways to remove directors from office, but each option justifies careful consideration of the implications and risks involved.

Other options may include injunction proceedings, court declarations and orders for the return of assets. It really depends on the individual circumstances of your business.

If the position with the director is confrontational then it is highly likely that there will be repercussions (either in relation to service agreement breaches or otherwise) that may well have a financial impact on the company, even after the director has been removed so it is sensible to consider what claims the company may have against the director, and vice versa.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Alternative Dispute Resolution is a way of solving a problem without having to go to court. At GL Law we have a wealth of experience in all forms of ADR including negotiations, mediation and arbitration. Find out more about ADR.
