CORPORATE DISPUTES

Corporate disputes occur due to disagreements arising from the establishment and management of a business entity. Corporate disputes often occur between shareholders (participants) of the business entity, as well as company management. Differences between the parties that remain unsettled may make it impossible to continue to do business.

What disputes are considered corporate?

Corporate disputes are related to:

  • Establishment, reorganisation and liquidation of the business entity;
  • Ownership of shares in the share capital;
  • Claims from cooperate members for damages caused to/by the company;
  • Recognition of deals as null and void;
  • Assignment and termination of powers of company executives;
