Family Disputes

Many family businesses face the same stresses as other businesses, but they have the extra challenge of family relationship and internal politics. Our team understand that decisions can affect the business and the family as a whole.

These disputes are often difficult when it comes to finances and especially when they threaten the stability of the business. It is important that these cases are resolved quickly alongside defending your interests.

We can assist with a wide range of family company disputes, including:

  • Directors disqualifications
  • Directors duties
  • Contract disputes
  • Insolvency
  • Management disputes
  • Partnership agreements
  • Shareholder agreements

Why Choose Us?

We exclusively work on resolving all disputes before going to court. This is also cost effective for our clients and helps speed up a resolution.

We work with businesses across the country, which means we have first-hand insight into the stresses and strains of running family companies. There is a fine line between maintaining relationships, business finances and resolving a dispute. Our commercialism and exceptional client service puts us in the best position to help resolve your situation.

Often historical events and personal feelings arise during the decision-making process in a family business. It is always best to avoid any conflict which may damage the business and often outside advisors can help diffuse tension.
