“What begins well does not always end well” – Never is that common phrase more relevant than in the event of a dispute between shareholders or business partners.
Often, the partners or shareholders have entered into their common enterprises without planning for the possibility of a later dispute. It is common for parties to avoid seeking legal advice during the embryonic stages of their venture, either as a measure to preserve capital or because the thought of a later dispute is inconceivable at the time. This leaves significant uncertainty about the rights of the parties when a dispute arises, resulting in confusion and delay between the disputing parties and, ultimately, detriment to the underlying business venture. Our lawyers will help you cut through the uncertainty and negotiate a commercial resolution to the dispute.
