Our client stories

A successful businessman retained us to resolve a dispute between him and his business partner. Both owned 50% of the business but our client felt strongly that he was investing more time, resources and energy into the business than the other partner, who was not pulling his weight and seemed to have lost interest. Our client was concerned that the business was losing money because commercial opportunities were not being pursued. Resentment had developed into hostilities and our client wanted to understand his position.

Unfortunately, there was no Shareholders’ Agreement or Service Agreements in place, as is often the case, but following a thorough and detailed review of the background, we identified a number of legal arguments that could assist our client and implemented a strategy to bring pressure to bear, including the threat of proceedings, that resulted in the other partner agreeing to mediate.

Through the mediation process, the other partner agreed to leave the business and to be bought out over a period of time for a fair price.
