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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Stonegate Legal, we provide legal services to companies dealing with disputes, conflicts or legal challenges that arise in the course of their business operations.

The process for resolving a corporate dispute involves pre-dispute negotiation, filing a lawsuit or arbitration, discovery, pretrial motions, trial or hearing, judgment or award, and appeals. The specifics may vary depending on the situation and case. 


Yes, in many cases, a corporate dispute can be resolved without the need to go to court. One of our corporate dispute lawyers can help you negotiate a settlement with the other party, or assist you in finding an alternative resolution such as mediation.

This can be beneficial for all parties involved, as it often saves time and money that would have been spent on court proceedings.

The length of time it takes to resolve a corporate dispute varies greatly depending on the complexity of the case and any other factors that may be involved.

Generally, if both parties are willing to work together and make reasonable compromises, it can be possible to resolve the dispute in a short period of time. However, if negotiations break down or the other party is unwilling to cooperate, it may take longer for the dispute to be resolved in court.
