Defending Unfair Prejudice Proceedings for Shareholders

We were instructed to act for the majority shareholders of a manufacturing business to defend unfair prejudice proceedings. Working with Leading Counsel, we formulated a robust defence and fought our clients’ case vigorously in correspondence with the opposing solicitors.

Shortly after the Costs and Case Management Conference and Disclosure, we agreed to attend a mediation. A commercial settlement was achieved for a sum that was far less than the amount claimed. We were also able to negotiate additional terms that met our clients’ specific business needs.
