Our Practice

Shareholder and Partnership Disputes and Litigation

Focused on providing strategic and practical advice and solutions for our clients.

Shareholder and partnership disputes can be highly damaging, and sometimes fatal, to the day-to-day operations of your business. Simply put: when businesses have to deal with internal disunity, they are unable to focus on their external affairs and their bottom line business objectives. Our lawyers have the specialized knowledge, experience and resolve to aggressively advance and/or defend your shareholder rights and remedies, always with the aim of getting your business back on track as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

We routinely deal with a broad variety of shareholder, officer, director, company and partnership disputes and remedies, including:

  • Shareholder remedies and litigation
  • Oppression of shareholders and corporate stakeholders
  • Breach of Shareholders’ Agreements and violations of shareholder rights
  • Fraud
  • Breach of fiduciary and executive duties
  • Breach of contract
  • Defence of professional negligence claims against officers and directors

In Toronto, many shareholder and partnership disputes are litigated in the Commercial List branch of the Superior Court of Justice, before Judges possessing highly specialized knowledge of company and commercial law. Our team has a long history in the practice and procedure of the Commercial List, with experience in acting for both large corporations and small, closely held companies and partnerships.

To contact our firm regarding your shareholder, company or partnership dispute/litigation matter, please call us at (416) 364-4900.
