Queensland Corporate Dispute Lawyers
Dealing With Corporations Disputes
Corporate disputes refer to any altercation between two or more entities that may hold an economic or legal stake in the disagreement. These arguments typically come about due to a difference of opinion concerning control of assets or services, or the settlement of fees or royalties.
In addition, corporate disputes can be triggered by questionable business practices, contractual infringements, or appropriating another company’s intellectual property. As such, the parties must engage in dialogue or take the dispute to a legal tribunal.

What Are Corporate Disputes
Corporate disputes encompass various types, such as oppression of minority shareholders, breach of directors’ duties, breach of confidentiality, and instances of fraud or dishonesty involving company officers.
In Australia, the Corporations Act establishes a comprehensive framework that outlines the rights, obligations, and remedies applicable to shareholders, company directors, and other stakeholders involved in corporate affairs. Apart from the aforementioned types of disputes, conflicts may arise due to breach of contract or shareholders agreement, violations or repudiation of a share sale agreement, disagreements between shareholders or directors and shareholders, and disputes concerning the management of the company. These various circumstances contribute to the complexity and diversity of corporate disputes in the business world.
