Shareholder And Partnership Disputes

Often when there is a shareholder or partnership dispute, the future of the company may be at stake. It is often important to make sure that the dispute is resolved quickly and thoroughly so that the business can get back to functioning as it should.

Shareholder Disputes

Shareholders often need strategic advice at the earliest opportunity and effective litigation so that their case doesn't become bogged down for years while their shares underperform.

Our Calgary shareholder dispute lawyers will get the right information to assist in building your case and will negotiate on your behalf to defend your interests. We will represent you in oppression actions or consider derivative actions on your behalf if your company will not enforce your rights.

We can act in disputes over a variety of issues, including:

  • Breach of directors' duties
  • Directors' and officers' liability
  • Company management
  • Dividend policies
  • Failure to provide financial information
  • Failure to provide statutory information
  • Breaches of shareholders agreements
  • Termination of shareholder as an employee

Partnership Disputes

Partnership disputes can result in an entire business/company being unable to function, as its partners focus more on the dispute than on the work of the business. They can also cause companies to underperform if the issue involves differing visions for the business/company or competing strategies for how to make it thrive.

Our Calgary partnership dispute lawyers will help you focus on each partner's needs and interests and help you come up with creative solutions to your problems. We will also help you decide whether the business can be salvaged and the partners remain in business together, or if it needs to dissolve so that the parties in conflict can pursue separate interests.
