Shareholder Disputes

“The aim of a conflict or a dispute should not be in victory but in progress.”

(Joseph Joubert)

When carrying on a business activity, conflicts sometimes cannot be avoided. The question is how to deal with conflicts and what resolution strategy to pursue.

In the case of conflicts among shareholders, an agreement, if necessary in the form of a compromise, is usually a good solution in the short or medium term. However, if the conflict threatens future constructive cooperation, we recommend the involvement of an impartial third party. Through an objective third party, different views can in the best case scenario be combined into a new, further view so that the conflict can be settled. If this also fails, exit strategies must be considered and negotiated.
