LIDW Member-Hosted Event. The rise in shareholder disputes: practical strategies for resolution.
The pandemic has caused the tide to go out for many businesses leaving shareholders to discover that they have been swimming naked! Investors have been paying closer attention to underperforming investments, leading to an increase in the discovery of fraud and wrongdoing by directors. Further, parties are making moves to take control of struggling businesses and ousting underperforming business partners. This session explored the catalysts for current shareholder disputes, the themes appearing in cases before the courts and in arbitration and practical ways to seek to resolve disputes in a cost-effective fashion.
The panel was moderated by Paul Downes QC, and included Nicola Allsop from Quadrant, Luke Harrison and Kit Smith from Keidan Harrison and Neil Ashton of StoneTurn.
