In recent years, various disputes over the control of the company have emerged one after another. The struggle between shareholders and husband and wife for the control and management of the company is surging, and battles are happening every moment. In recent years, the "competition" of official seals and related licenses has been common in such disputes. The public security organs often do not intervene in the handling of disputes, and more guide the parties to file lawsuits in the courts. However, the litigation process related to the " battle for control " related to company resolution disputes, license return disputes, etc., has been in dispute for several years. How to ensure the realization of the company's control rights during the settlement process? How to ensure that the company's operations are not interfered by other disputes of the company? These are all major issues that need to be solved urgently. The "behavior preservation" entrusted by the law to the courts has shown its power at this time. Although due to various considerations, judicial administrative agencies often take a very cautious attitude when making behavior preservation decisions in practice. Because of this, the application of the behavior preservation system in the disputes over the control of the company is worthy of our in-depth discussion here. The dispute resolution team of Beijing Docvit Law Firm will analyze this issue in combination with a series of recent cases of corporate control struggles.

Combined with the latest judicial judgement point of view, this article makes a legal analysis on the liability of listed companies for illegal guarantee.
