What is a boardroom dispute?
A boardroom dispute involves a disagreement between members of a company’s board of directors. It can involve issues such as strategic direction, management decisions, or conflicts of interest.
Is your business involved in a boardroom dispute and are you unsure how to resolve it?
You may be worried a dispute between directors could damage the business by preventing it from operating efficiently. If boardroom disputes are leaked, they have the potential to damage the firm’s reputation with clients and shareholders. This makes it vital to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible.
What is the legal position of a boardroom dispute?
Usually boardroom disputes will be resolved by either agreeing a solution or by removing one or more of the directors who are in dispute.
The area of law which surrounds boardroom disputes is complex. It will be necessary to go back and analyse how the company was set up, and how the articles of association deal with boardroom disputes or the removal of a director.
If the boardroom dispute is to be resolved by removing a director, the articles of association need to be read in conjunction with the director’s service agreement. It is important to proceed carefully, as the director being removed may make claims such as unfair dismissal or wrongful dismissal. This is one reason why ensuring you have specialist support from experienced boardroom dispute solicitors is important for businesses.
