Shareholders Disputes

We regularly counsel natural persons, corporations, partnerships and other organizations on the prevention, resolution and litigation of shareholder disagreements.

We understand that even small-scale shareholder disputes, if not managed properly, often disrupt a business’s operations and threaten its well-being. So, while we favour and work to craft creative solutions for problems, and to resolve disputes through negotiations, we are ready to shift to aggressive litigation when that is the client’s best option.

Our experience in shareholder matters is broad. We advise on the initiation of shareholder agreements, and handle disputes from the initial stages through trial up to the courts of highest instances. Our record includes both high-profile shareholder litigation at the largest corporations in the Baltics and private matters resolved through various forms of out-of-court settlements.
