Corporate and M&A Disputes

Our team has over 20 years’ experience lawyers advising a diverse range of clients. We advise on all types of corporate disputes arising out of shareholders agreements, joint venture agreements and minority shareholder claims

What is involved?

A significant part of our litigation practice revolves around disputes arising from M&A transactions involving complex warranty and indemnity claims, pricing disputes, earn out disputes, wrongful withholding of retentions and tag-along and drag-along rights.

We also advise on all types of corporate disputes arising out of shareholders agreements, joint venture agreements and minority shareholder claims.

Why choose our corporate and M&A disputes team?

  • These cases often feel very complicated, however with our experience we are able to cut to what matters so you can ‘see the wood for the trees’. This also helps us to manage costs effectively.
  • We advise our clients against points of principle in favour of focusing the most advantageous outcome within the constraints of the law.
  • We are outcome focused and renowned for trying to keep disputes out of court through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution. This can be very advantageous in these cases because there are often ongoing relationships to manage. However, we play to win and don’t hesitate to take a hard line and drive forward cases when appropriate, whether in court proceedings or arbitration.
  • Our team has over 20 years’ experience lawyers advising a diverse range of clients. They include international PLC, FTSE 100 companies, AIM listed companies to small privately owned companies. With all our clients, we do everything we can to act in your best interest to resolve the dispute faster, better and cheaper than our competitors.
