Shareholder & Partnership Lawyers

While starting a business with someone else can be a great experience, there may come a time where your vision for the business no longer aligns with them.

We can help manage your business relationship from the establishment of your business with structuring advice, including:

  • Drafting shareholder or partnership agreements
  • Preparing buy/sell agreements, allowing insurance to fund unplanned exits due to death or total and permanent disability
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes can be like marriage breakdowns – very personal and very stressful, especially when the shareholders are still trying to operate the business.

Once the dispute arises, Kells can assist you in negotiating a mutually agreeable outcome, whether through informal settlement conference or through formal alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation.

If the dispute turns litigious, Kells lawyers are experienced in a range of Supreme Court Corporations List Matters, and can guide you through the process of litigation, including:

  • Providing honest and pragmatic advice
  • Managing the conduct of your litigation matter
  • Negotiating settlement or appearing on your behalf in Court.
