Shareholder Disputes / Oppression Claims

We are frequently called upon to litigate or settle complex shareholder disputes. Our firm’s collective business acumen adds significant value to our legal expertise in this area. Our expertise extends to seeking interim orders on an urgent basis to preserve the status quo, protect individual rights, or ensure business viability or continuity.

We represent both majority and minority shareholders with a view to ensuring that their rights are fully protected pursuant to the applicable business corporations statutes (federal or provincial). Our litigation lawyers also have significant experience in representing public and private corporations embroiled in such disputes. At all stages of a dispute, we ensure that the best possible remedy is obtained, ranging from maintaining the status quo to the forced purchase of shares between disputing parties to the winding up of a company and the distribution of assets.
