Litigation team CORP. successful in summary proceedings about conflict with company board

CORP. represented a majority shareholder in a conflict with the board of the company about governance. After a decision had been taken in the general meeting to suspend the director, the latter initiated summary proceedings on behalf of the company in which it was claimed that the major shareholder would repay a shareholder loan. CORP. successfully argued that the board, after being suspended, was not authorized to represent the company in court (not even by virtue of trusteeship as alleged) and that the loan was not due and payable. The judge dismissed the claim. The conflict about the functioning of the board and violation of governance was followed up in proceedings on the merits (2022).
