Toronto Dispute Lawyers for Shareholder Disputes & Partnership Disputes
Our dispute lawyers know that shareholder disputes and partnership disputes can be some of the most difficult and emotional litigation, since it involves the breakdown of an (often) close relationship between friends or family. It also can impact heavily on one’s income and wealth. In many cases, the dispute will involve oppression of the minority shareholders or struggles for control over a business by its officers and directors. In some cases, it means the end of a prosperous business which has taken on a personality of its own. The shareholder and partnership dispute lawyers at Devry Smith Frank LLP (“DSF”) bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to assist with navigating this difficult process. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with the Partnerships Act, the Business Corporation Act, and their oppression and winding up statutory schemes which govern this process in Ontario.
