An accountancy practice was effectively deadlocked with our client holding 50% of the shares. The parties were in disagreement on a number of important strategic issues. The other director/shareholders adopted a confrontational approach, submitting recharge invoices (which were disputed) and claiming incorrectly that the company was insolvent on the basis of such invoices. They also offered to buy out our client’s share at a value that was considered far too low. Each of these actions and threatened actions in turn was strongly contested. Ultimately the other director/shareholders agreed to resign and to transfer their shares, leaving our client with control of the company.
