Case Study

An ousted business owner told he didn’t have a chance, then came to Aptum

Problem: Aptum’s client was forced out of his position in a co-op business in a highly specialised industry by the other shareholders. The client contacted several lawyers prior to Aptum who advised him that a shareholder oppression claim was unsubstantiated.

Aptum’s role: Aptum was engaged, and based an oppression claim on a novel interpretation of the Court’s powers to order compensation for our client.

Outcome: Despite this matter having been transferred to Aptum following a significant legal spend by the client, Aptum was able to strategise a legal pathway that achieved a successful outcome for the client whilst acting against a much larger firm.
