Shareholder Disputes

Typical challenges:

  • Passing the business to the next generation can create real tensions within the family
  • Siblings may have different appetites for involvement in the business, but how to treat all fairly?
  • A shareholder wants an exit and there is a failure to reach agreement on terms and conditions
  • A new shareholder wants in but there is failure to reach agreement on fair terms and conditions
  • Disagreements are threatening value already created and hampering creation of new wealth


A mediated conversation will cut through communication barriers and create a business based dialogue to enable focus on:

  • Preserving relations
  • Achieving fair outcomes
  • Enabling agreement on basis for changes and permit early return to focus on building successful futures 


Other areas where mediation can help:

  • A dispute over how to approach resolving a specific tactical or strategic business issue
