A new remedy for family business oppression

Family business disputes claiming oppressive conduct can be costly and time consuming, but a court pilot aims to both streamline the legal process and cut costs.

Disputes in family businesses are messy, and if they end up in claims that the affairs of the company were conducted in an “oppressive” manner, it will often see small family business shareholders paying tens of thousands of dollars to prove their claim.

It’s generally money that they just don’t have. In some cases, they are bought out, or the business is wound up.
