Commercial and corporate disputes

Overview

Our dispute lawyers have considerable experience of acting for shareholders, directors, companies and partnerships. Matters worked on include shareholder/partnership disputes, unfair prejudice petitions, derivative actions, joint venture disputes, managed exits, earn out disputes and general corporate disputes both domestic and international.

We understand the sensitivities surrounding these types of disputes and the need to avoid the expense and distraction of legal proceedings. With this in mind we work with clients to negotiate swift and pragmatic solutions to their problems.

Our experience includes:

  • Deutsche Bank AG v Sebastian Holdings Inc. and Alexander Vik [2014] - acting for the second defendant (a director of SHI) in respect of a £60m non-party costs order, the largest ever such order made in England & Wales.
  • Advising members of a LLP regarding the attempted expulsion of one of its members and the profit share owed to other members of the LLP, including negotiating the dissolution of the LLP and division of the business.
  • Acting for a defendant company in a multijurisdictional dispute with elements in Ireland, the UK and Romania by an alleged shareholder for the transfer of shares to it and for damages in excess of €2 million.
  • Advising former shareholders on a breach of warranty claim brought under an SPA by a major US pharmaceutical company.
