My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
There has to be a meeting to have them removed. Because you each have the same share holding you have no other choice but to offer to buy them out and then they can resign or have a court order.
I assume that you do not have a shareholders agreement that sets out what happens if there is a deadlock at a meeting
Unfortunately these are you only options.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
