Disputes arising between directors, shareholders or partners of any business can have detrimental effects for the company, partnership, LLP and getting the dispute resolved quickly and effectively is at the top of everyone’s priority.

The expert litigation and dispute team at Gorvins Solicitors combine advising the client on their rights and obligations as a director or shareholder with tactical, commercial and strategic advice. We know a lengthy courtroom battle is not something that any business wants to be involved in and we always, where possible, attempt alternative methods including arbitration, mediation and round table settlement discussions.
