Belgian company law contains a dispute resolution mechanism for shareholders that are embroiled in a conflict from which they are no longer able to extricate themselves. In this regard, there are two possibilities: a claim for a forced buyout, pursuant to which a shareholder requests that another shareholder be obliged to transfer its securities, and an exit claim, whereby a shareholder requests that its shares be acquired by the other shareholders. Both types of claims are possible under certain circumstances and subject to judicial supervision.
