Obtaining legal advice from a litigation lawyer who is experienced in shareholder disputes is what you need in your corner. A great lawyer will be able to give you options to resolve your dispute – as there is often more than one option. If a negotiated settlement can be reached before the matter goes to court, this is often the best outcome for all concerned.
A court is the only authority that can force a party to act in a certain manner. For this reason, litigation may be required to get the outcomes that you desire.
If a shareholder dispute goes to court, the judge can make the following types of orders:
Litigation is certainly not always necessary. However, it can effectively be used as a tool where parties are not coming to the table, to force a resolution and end date to the dispute.
It is common for disputes to be resolved amid court-based litigation after the parties to the dispute are forced into action. Agreements can be reached by a variety of ways such as settlement offers or mediation.
There are many reasons that give rise to a shareholder dispute, but these are not always ultimately relevant to how the dispute is resolved. The conduct of the company and relationship between the parties can determine what course of action is taken.

Joanna Shaft of PCL Lawyers is outstanding in her knowledge of the law and is incredibly proactive and helpful. I had immediate positive results with her assistance in retrieving my rental bond in full, from an unreasonable and unruly landlord. Joanna was able to do in a day what the rental tribunal couldn’t do in several weeks. Utmost professionalism, attention to detail, care and concern for clients, and very reasonable costs. I highly recommend Joanna’s representation and the services of PCL Lawyers.
