Shareholder disputes are more common than most people would expect. Frequently shareholders embark on some business venture without any formal agreement; rather, they have a loose understanding of the financing and conduct of the business and a "standard" set of company articles. This pattern leads to trouble. Moreover, even where a shareholder agreement exists, conflict may arise from a variety of conditions. For example, although remedies may be built into a shareholder agreement to deal with some foreseen problems, it may not address the unanticipated.
