Shareholder Remedies

Shareholder rights are protected and outlined in the common law in Canada. A well-drafted agreement makes sure that a company’s directors and officers behave in such a way as to maximize shareholder earnings. Since there is generally more than one, disagreements and queries can arise when shareholders want to pursue different strategic goals or business opportunities. These disputes can be resolved through arbitration, negotiation, litigation or mediation. This is why it’s necessary to seek help from a lawyer who knows corporate litigation laws and will fight for the best outcome.

Our general litigation lawyers in Ontario have experience handling different types of business disputes. These include investigating merit, strategizing over the other party’s motives and goals, and determining the best way forward to resolve your case. We have experience representing shareholders on both sides of a lawsuit and make every effort to ensure your business isn’t affected. Some common shareholder disputes we have experience with include:

  • Business dissolution
  • Violation of an agreement
  • Fraud
  • Forced buyout of shares
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Valuation disputes
  • Share price disputes
  • Termination of business relationships

Our professional approach and extensive experience can help both parties reach a resolution amicably and quickly. Schedule a one-on-one case consultation to understand your options and the best approach to take.

Injunctive Relief

An injunction is a legal remedy that can be requested and granted in different types of disputes. It represents the peak of a court’s discretion and authority and can be used to force a party to stop something they are doing and compel them to cooperate.

Since injunctive relief is a specialized area of law, it’s best to seek counsel from a lawyer with the necessary experience. Indeed, the right lawyer can provide the right guidance. Their understanding of the different technical areas of the law allows them to offer strategic benefits to their clients. So, whether you or your company are responding to, seeking, are subjected to an order or injunction, or are affected by it, don’t wait to get legal representation and advice.

At Brar Tamber Rigby, our team of lawyers knows how to optimize the chances of a favourable outcome for our clients.

  • Protection against the misuse of confidential and proprietary information.
  • Prevention of trespassing acts on a piece of land.
  • Breach of non-solicitation or non-competition clauses by departing employees.
  • Fraudulent preservation and/or disposal of property.
  • Prevention of commercial transactions including but not limited to hostile takeovers and asset sales.

Our experience in responding to and pursuing these remedies has allowed us to protect our clients’ interests while successfully dealing with complex injunctions.

Construction Liens

A construction lien registered on the title of a property gives the claimant protection for unpaid materials and/or services delivered for its improvement. This lien can only be discharged by the Court’s order, by an agreement between the parties, or on terms to offer protection to the claimant.

According to the Ontario Construction Lien Act, when a builder, renovation contractor or construction manager hasn’t been compensated for their work, it is within their right to put a lien on the property. This means that the contractor or construction company places a hold on the work they are conducting on the property.

If you are dealing with a legal dispute related to a construction lien, Brar Tamber Rigby can assist you with the necessary litigation. Our lawyers have handled numerous construction lien cases and can protect your rights in a construction contract. Whether you are the property owner, contractor or subcontractor, we can help by providing guidance to settle the dispute.

Franchise Litigation

Most franchisee/franchisor relationships tend to work well in the beginning when the agreement has been drafted properly. However, disagreements may arise owing to the longevity and complexity of the relationship. In such instances, it’s best to negotiate terms of settlement to handle disputes. However, there may be instances when franchise litigation is the only way to successfully resolve the dispute. This is a job for Brar Tamber Rigby’s general litigation lawyers in Ontario.

We can act on behalf of franchisees, franchisors, distributors, and dealerships to resolve disputes in connection with or arising out of business relationships. Our ongoing success stems from our understanding of the unique laws and concerns surrounding franchise litigation. We use our experience and knowledge to attain successful outcomes for our clients.

We aim to resolve disputes as efficiently and quickly as possible through expert legal services. Our experienced general litigation lawyers are professional, practical and ethical in their approach and dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes.

General Commercial Litigation
