What we do:

Joint ventures (ventures where two or more people, companies or organisations work together for a specific purpose or project, rather than as an ongoing business) can often be accompanied by disputes.

However, New South Lawyers’ Litigation & Dispute Resolution team can assist. Find out how we can help you.

Disputes surrounding shares in a proprietary company can involve issues such as concerns over access to information, dissatisfaction with decisions at the board and management levels of the business, and frustrations with certain actions of business partners (including dealings with shares in the company and company assets).
