Shareholder, Director, Partnership, & LLP Disputes
Disputes between shareholders or directors and shareholders of a business can arise for many reasons.

Whether the disagreement is over allegations of fraud or dishonesty,the breakdown of relationships, a lack of performance of a shareholder, owner, partner or a director, the terms of directors’ contract or breach of director’s duties, or concern over whether the board is meeting its legal responsibilities, there are always competing interests that need to be considered.
