Has there been a dispute between directors? Do you need to know your options for how to best resolve the dispute?
Director disputes can be disruptive to your business and stunt a company’s growth. Clifford Gouldson understands the complexities of director disputes and can help you resolve them by providing all the options available to you.
Our lawyers have experience with a range of director disputes, including matters relating to:
- Intellectual property disputes
- Directors stealing from the business
- Disagreements over the direction of the business
- Drafting shareholders agreements.
To minimise the likelihood of disputes, we recommend that you have a shareholders agreement for the company. This is important as directors often have shares in the company.
A shareholders agreement can outline the dispute resolution processes to be taken in the event of a dispute and set penalties for directors should they fail to act in the best interests of the business.
If there is no shareholders agreement governing the directors, alternative dispute resolution is recommended.
