Partnerships, like marriages, may break down all too frequently. This may trigger the sale of a business to a third party or it may trigger the purchase of shares of one or more partners by other partner(s).
In such situations, we may act on behalf of all co-shareholders in the sale of the business to a third party, or represent one or more partners in the acquisition of shares owned by other co-shareholders. We have considerable experience in dealing with rights of refusal that are often part of shareholder agreements. Once again, we may also assist with valuation and deal structuring.
On more than one occasion, we have also assisted co-shareholders in a company to reconcile their differences or come to consensus about major events such as exiting.
