About this Seminar

Most shareholders' disputes arise in the context of small companies where the members are involved in bitter personal squabbles. Given the prominence of small, family-owned businesses in Ireland, the chances are that you will be asked for advice in such matters in the course of your practice. Similarly, tough economic times have meant creditors are more eager than ever to ensure they get paid. They will want your opinion on how to set about achieving this!

What happens when the company's directors abuse their powers to the detriment of shareholders? Or where the company simply refuses to pay a debt owed to a creditor? Or indeed where it is unable to pay a debt to a creditor? What remedies are available to them? That is the focus of this seminar. The aim is to provide practitioners with an understanding of all the options available to their clients in matters involving corporate disputes, particularly in relation to insolvent companies. Some of these options are well known; most of them are not. We discuss each available remedy and the practicalities of enforcing them in the courts.
