He can do what he likes.
An EGM must be called by at least 10% of voting shareholders or the directors. There must be proposals and venue for meeting on 21 days notice sent in the usual way otherwise anything decided isn't lawful. Then if they seek to implement that, you then apply to court.
TBH I would get a solicitor to warn him off doing anything except by correct procedure ASAP
We have decided to go to court today to obtain an injunction against him because he has already began to speak to other shareholders, spreading false information and deliberately undermining our integrity. How should we do this?
Injunction is done on form N16A. Fee is £175. You have to warn him to stop immediately.
If you attach cert of urgency explaining why this is urgent (a letter) it can be in court in days rather than weeks for an interim order pending full hearing
What to put in the Claim Form and what is the statutory provision? does the human rights question apply?
No HR issues
Just tick Part 8 box
Hello I need additional assistance on this matter.
We did apply for an injunction but without the certificate of urgency. The hearing is scheduled for December.
But now that dissenting director has in fact gone ahead to with an unlawful AGM. They claim to have voted us out, and voted in new directors including himself. We know it is unlawful and I need some assistance on the form of words to use to announce to all leaseholders that it was unlawful.
Could we not just ask the court to overturn the outcome of the AGM?
Could I instruct you to assist us please? This is a travesty of justice that's being perpetrated
I am sorry but we are specifically precluded from taking instructions from here.
This is likely to need some face-to-face meetings so you would be better finding a local firm.
Thank you very much. But before you go, could you help with the form of words to announce to all leaseholders that the meeting was unlawful and that any motions passed were invalid. Thanks
Thank you very much. You are the best
