Corporations, Partnership & Trusts Disputes

Disputes between partners or owners of a business are fraught with complexity, as unmitigated competing interests can often erode the underlying business value. Our dispute resolution team are practiced at negotiating the careful landscape that comes with an ownership dispute and routinely give advice to shareholders, business owners and partners on their rights and obligations, including a range of litigious options when the situation calls for it.

Likewise, disputes between shareholders and the directors appointed to manage their interests, (including the oppression of minority shareholders) or as between trustee and beneficiaries, often requires immediate and resolute action to preserve the underlying value and avoid any damaging dissipation or dilution of assets.

Our dispute resolution team also advises directors on their obligations under the Corporations Act 2010, including navigating issues such as management deadlock, conflicts of interest and director’s remuneration and personal liabilities.
