Partnership, Shareholder, Family Business

Partnership, Shareholder, Family Business

In these cases it is essential that the mediator understands the legal dispute and also, more importantly, can work with the interpersonal dynamics which arise.

Partners or shareholders who fall out tend to do so intensely, even more so in the case of family businesses, where several differing views as to fairness must be managed.

Charles Middleton-Smith is widely experienced in Partnership, Shareholder and Family Business cases. Below are examples of some recent engagements in this area:

  • Joint venture/shareholder dispute: high value matter, restaurant sector, significant IP rights and commercial issues, claims for breach of fiduciary duty, corporate governance issues
  • Companies Act claim for unfairly prejudicial conduct in 3 companies – quasi-partnership – issues of share allotment, breaches of fiduciary duty, mismanagement. Business sector – clothing and property
