Dispute resolution – Company disputes
Our preferred approach is to resolve disputes through settlement negotiations and alternative dispute resolution.
Our team has extensive experience in dealing with a wide variety of company disputes, including fraud and unlawful means conspiracy, investor misrepresentation, shareholder disputes, unfair prejudice petitions, claims for malfeasance and breach of director’s duties, often involving a multi-jurisdictional element. We advise all those involved in companies, such as investors, funders, debenture holders and insolvency practitioners, as well as the board. Such disputes are usually highly contentious and all-consuming for the business and the individuals involved. However, our team is adept at managing these disputes and thinking creatively and strategically about how to achieve the desired result for our clients, whilst avoiding protracted litigation.
Our preferred approach is to resolve disputes through settlement negotiations and alternative dispute resolution, as we find that this is the best route to preserving the business and the working relationships of the individuals involved. However, where this is not possible, our team is experienced in successfully litigating such disputes at all levels of the Court system.
