Disputes and liability
How can we help you?
Every day, the lawyers at Hoens & Souren are working on issues such as:
- Arguments between shareholders
- Standing up for minority shareholders in need
- Conflicts regarding acquisitions
- Liability, dismissal and suspension of directors
- Conflicts with ‘special credits’ departments of banks
We do this as commissioned by shareholders, directors, supervisory directors, and works councils.
For example, conflicts between shareholders often get out of hand. We have experience with specific procedures such as:
- Dispute settlement rules
- Inquiry proceedings (including immediate relief)
- Seizure of evidence
Most cases can be resolved out of court.
