David Edwards of Staffordshire law firm ORJ was instructed by a co-owner of an IT business which operates in the UK, Scandinavia and the Baltic states. ORJ were tasked with handling a shareholder director’s dispute and worked towards restoring a director to the board after his wrongful removal by our client’s fellow co-owner.
The main business trades out of London, under a UK constitution. Following an order of HHJ Purle QC, the director was restored to the main board and the defendant co-owner was ordered to pay £28,000 in costs.
David Edwards said, “Sometimes people forget to check a company’s constitution before they act. A simple majority of other directors isn’t always enough to remove someone from the board.”
If you have a shareholders director’s dispute, it pays to take legal advice as soon as possible. For more information on how law firm ORJ could help you, contact Mike Smyth or Patrick Tedstone for an initial discussion. Alternatively you can call us on: 01785 223440
