Shareholder Agreements & Disputes

In a closely-held company, relationships need to be closely managed (not unlike a marriage). When differences arise, we use skill and sensitivity to help you manage your relationships and preserve the value of your business. Our carefully-drafted shareholder agreements enable you to manage relationships and avoid or resolve disputes. These agreements also serve as a roadmap for critical decisions on financing, dividing profits, selling, succession, and transferring shares.

We will begin by gathering your input, keep you informed on our progress and any challenges that arise, represent your interests faithfully, and maintain a respectful demeanour in our dealings with all parties.

Michael helped us navigate successfully through the delicate and sometimes challenging process of ironing out a new shareholder’s agreement. His ability to work diplomatically with the stakeholders, find common ground and keep everyone focused on the end objective proved invaluable to achieving a positive outcome.
