Particularly if companies and their shareholders did not have the time or immediate reason to deal intensively with questions of corporate law at the beginning of the entrepreneurial cooperation, or if they shied away from the associated effort, problems among the shareholders are pre-programmed, which often end in protracted and costly shareholder disputes in the further course. Typical occasions for such disputes among shareholders are differences of opinion among the shareholder-managers as to how the company should be managed, the exclusion/termination of a shareholder for good cause (e.g. in the case of competition violations or irregularities in the management), divorce of a shareholder, death of a shareholder and successor heirs, or the wish of a shareholder to sell the company but does not receive the necessary consent from the other shareholders.
