Shareholder disputes and dispute resolution

A dysfunctional relationship among shareholders can cause a lot of damage to the enterprise, especially if the relationships are such that legally, no legally valid decisions can be taken in the absence of a majority of votes.

Irrespective of the nature of the dispute and the type of shareholder (majority shareholder, minority shareholder, or shareholders in a 50:50 ratio) we can look for a suitable solution. Perhaps the dispute can still be resolved amicably, whether or not through a voluntary share sale after intensive negotiations or by drawing up a clear shareholder agreement.  

If this proves impossible, an expulsion procedure or a compulsory acquisition procedure (dispute resolution) may be among the possibilities.
