About the seminar:

Disagreement and conflict are inevitable in human life. Accountants may face circumstances that the corporate affairs of their client or their employer are heavily associated with shareholders disputes. Or, in some cases, the relationship of married couple turns sour and evolves matrimonial disputes. Unresolved frictions could turn the matters to the court rooms and thus require due effort from the parties to deal with the issues. This presentation would introduce what the causes and remedies are for shareholder and matrimonial disputes and what role accountants can play on these matters.

- The causes and remedies on shareholders dispute matters

- Matrimonial dispute as a special kind of “shareholder” dispute
