When conditions change amongst shareholders or with the corporation, its officers and/or directors, this can impact relations and require legal action to protect one's corporate interests.

The reality is that even though a company's shareholders may have been on the same page on day one, people change and situations change over time, such that disputes can arise from a relationship that was previously viewed as working 'perfectly'. Yet for a broad array of reasons, shareholders can find themselves at odds and need to facilitate their separation, whether it is through an exited strategy provided by a unanimous shareholders agreement, a negotiated resolution or court litigation.

Reasons for shareholders coming into conflict with one another, such that their separation becomes a necessity for the parties to move forward, which can include:

- financial issues (i.e., personal debt, gambling)

- medical issues (i.e., bipolar, schizophrenia, terminal illness)

- health issues (both personal and family related)

- family issues (i.e., divorce, separation, adultery)

- addictions (i.e., alcohol, drugs, gambling)

- differing perspectives on the future of the business and its financing
