Corporate & Partnership Disputes
We are experienced in advising on disputes relating to both public and private companies arising from acquisitions, mergers, disposals, joint ventures and funding.
Examples of the types of disputes include breach of warranty claims, misrepresentation and fraud claims, earn-out disputes, completion account disputes, enforcement of restrictive covenants and general corporate contractual interpretation disputes. These disputes may involve our Team in expert determination, arbitration or court proceedings.
The Team is familiar with all types of corporate documentation and works closely with our Corporate Team at the negotiation stage to minimise the risk of disputes. In the event of dispute, we work seamlessly with our clients and their other professional advisors with a view to providing commercially focussed and strategic advice and solutions.
We also advise on shareholder disputes, which involve significant tactical considerations and frequently urgent remedies are required to protect the business. These disputes may result in unfair prejudice and winding up proceedings, in respect of which we have extensive experience.
Disputes involving partnerships will involve complicated legal and tactical considerations. Our Team regularly acts in advising on partnerships disputes across both professional and business sectors in the context of standard partnerships, joint ventures and limited liability partnerships. These types of dispute typically involve allegations relating to the duties of partners, termination and expulsion issues, restrictive covenant issues and winding up.
We understand the particular dynamics that feature when any partnership dispute arises, including differences between various factions within a partnership. Due to the nature of these disputes our Team is available 24/7 to provide strategic advice and support to clients whenever required.
