Shareholding Laws




Resolving disputes amongst shareholders or with the corporation, its officers and/or directors.

Whereas alternate dispute resolution tends to be far more preferable to the uncertainty (and cost) of court litigation, the staunch reality is that at times litigation is made unavoidable. And it is in these limited circumstances, it is extremely important that you have a very strong legal and factual case when pursuing a resolution through the final option - litigation.

The fact is that litigation is both tedious and expensive, with there being no certainty that you will get the result that you are necessarily hoping for, and as such, you are losing the ability to negotiate a compromise solution (as opposed to potentially facing a judicial death blow). That being the principal challenge associated with pressing a dispute into litigation.

Nevertheless, there remain situations where litigation is a necessity, and after painstakingly reviewed the relevant information and the factual scenarios, against prevailing law, there is a strong enough case to press the matter before the courts. There still might be curve balls and previously unknown evidence that comes to light, which can prove to be serious setback and potentially derail your entire case. However, that is the chance that one takes with pushing forward with litigation.

Yet on the positive side, if the facts and law remains aligned in your favour, and the judicial process agrees with your position, you can realize the results (or a variant thereof) through the court litigation process. This is the stark reality of judicial litigation, whether it pertains to shareholders or any other plaintiff or defendant who has their case tried before the courts.
