A legal battle between shareholders of a major Irish PR firm,
Murray Consultants, is to go to the country’s High Court in the latest
stage of a long-running dispute (PR Week 6 Dec, 1996). Terence Horgan,
who owns nearly a third of the firm, is claiming ’oppression’ of a
shareholder and wants the company’s two directors, Joe Murray and Jim
Milton, to buy out his shares. Horgan, who left the company last
November after 23 years, said he was taking action because he had no
other means to support himself.
Murray and Milton were not available for comment.
