Valuation and Shareholder Services

Dispute resolution

Not every business relationship turns out as planned and sometimes the only sensible resolution is for shareholders to ‘go their own way’. This can sometimes mean the end of a business but more often than not it results in one or more shareholders continuing to run the business while others exit. Often the parting of the ways is amicable, but sometimes it is not.

Very few professional accountancy firms have the expertise or necessary experience to provide a specialist service to shareholders who need assistance and guidance when the time arrives to part company and the relationship between them has become tense, difficult or at an extreme has completely broken down.

Our Dispute Resolution service combines JDC’s experience and expertise in negotiating and structuring shareholder exits and in share and business valuations with the highly regarded expert witness, share valuation and litigation skills of specialist forensic accountants Walton Dodge Forensic.

The result is a bespoke service aimed at shareholders who are either keen to avoid or to resolve a dispute or who are simply trying to find a fair, pragmatic and tax efficient answer to the need to move on.

In our experience it is never too late to seek good, informed advice in this difficult area of business, even where matters seem to have already progressed to the point where a head to head seems inevitable. So whether in dispute, heading for a potential dispute or simply amicably parting company, our expertise in this area could well be the answer for you.

Initial consultations (with Jon Dodge) are provided without obligation, are always absolutely confidential and (based on feedback) are usually of clear and immediate value.
