Companies are run by management structures. These management groups are usually in charge of making large financial decisions. These financial decisions can directly impact a company’s share price, income, and indirectly, the shareholders.
This means that shareholder disputes can arise if the shareholders feel that the company isn’t making good decisions, and that their shares are suffering as a result. In most cases, disputes are opened when a number of large shareholders get together, but they can happen at any time. A good team of commercial lawyers is usually needed to make sure that the disputes are resolved in a timely manner which leaves both parties pleased.
The following five tips can help you, as a shareholder, deal with a shareholder dispute.
- Make Sure That You Are Represented By A Good Commercial Lawyer
The key, if you want the dispute to be dealt with in a timely fashion, is to make sure that the shareholder group is represented by a high quality commercial lawyer. Sometimes, this lawyer will be able to sort things out almost immediately, due to their knowledge and expertise when it comes to defusing tense disputes. However, at other times your lawyer will be required to help the shareholder group work through a long and tiring dispute process, but will hopefully be able to help achieve a good result.
