Course Overview

There are over 1 million shareholders in Irish private companies and it’s inevitable, especially closely managed family companies, that disputes will arise and if one or more of them goes legal, it’s full-blown Section 212 Oppression of Minorities Proceedings in the High Court with Solicitors and Barristers and a high price tag.

Accountants have a major role in advising clients and can be of great assistance in slowing the escalation of these disputes into full High Court proceedings.

Learn useful tips and gain tools to assist you in understanding this whole process and how to be of greater assistance to clients in shareholder disputes.

Learn essential mediation skills that you probably already possess to further enhance your skills set in this developing area and be of real benefit to clients involved in shareholder disputes and providing alternative remedies and mechanisms to avoid full on High Court proceedings.
