Disputes can arise for many reasons, also within a company. The legal relationships between the shareholders themselves, and between the shareholders and the company can be very complex. We pinpoint all relevant issues that need to be considered from the shareholders’, the shareholder meeting’s and the company’s view. A shareholder’s resignation from a company, for example – although usually by mutual agreement ̶ may still cause disputes. In particular, the severance package can be of key importance in such cases.
Liability is another important issue to consider in such a scenario, especially when it comes to limited partners in special corporate forms such as a German KG or GmbH & Co. KG. In the event of a compulsory redemption of company shares, for example, the question is often whether the company should redeem those shares itself and whether the company assets can sufficiently cover the severance package.
Our primary goal is always to find an amicable solution. If that is not possible and a legal dispute among the partners or shareholders, or with a managing director, the board of directors, creditors or heirs of shareholders becomes inevitable, we will represent you in out-of-court settlements and court proceedings alike.
