Requests for unfair prejudice are mere remedies for shareholders if they can prove it: another protection for minority shareholders is that once in force, a shareholder contract can only be amended with the agreement of all shareholders, while the company`s statutes can be amended by a majority of 75%. As a result, the former offers better protection. From a legal point of view, the company`s statutes and changes in the business register are public, but members of companies do not always want all agreements detailing how the business should be managed and operated to be accessible to the public. Under these conditions, members can enter into a shareholder contract if they wish to agree among themselves. A shareholders` pact is a contract between the members of a company. All members of a company can be chosen by only a few. Similarly, parties who are not shareholders may, in appropriate circumstances, be parties to a shareholders` pact. For this reason, it is customary and advisable to set in advance, in the context of the shareholders` pact, a certain amount of compensation to be paid by the defaulting party in the event of an effective breach of contract. This will help quantify the damage so far and avoid future damage repair problems. According to Spanish law, this is a “punitive clause.” (Article 1.152 of the BGB). Lincoln-Rowe can help understand shareholder remedies and understand what individuals and businesses can do to resolve shareholder disputes.

The starting point of any debate about the injury is that the general purpose of an action for damages is to allow the innocent party if the infringement had not occurred if the contract had been respected. Seeking corrective action from shareholders can be a complex transaction and independent legal advice is generally recommended. In certain circumstances, an action may be unfairly prejudicial, negligent or trustworthy on behalf of a director. An experienced corporate lawyer will be able to advise on how best to proceed and ensure that every step of a claim is proven. When an application is received by the Tribunal, it will first consider whether the case can be redirected. It will check whether two conditions are met, whether other corrective measures are available, as other shareholders are in place, why the company did not bring the case itself and whether the application was made in good faith. This is essentially an application to remedy the situation due to the offence (for example. B to denounce the social agreement that was adopted with the vote of a failing partner in violation of the shareholders` pact).
