What Is The Crux Of The Dispute You’re In?
Disputes involving shareholders take several different forms. With our comprehensive business practice, we can assist you in areas that include:
- Shareholder derivative suits — Derivative claims are lawsuits brought by shareholders on behalf of the company. They can arise when a shareholder believes the company failed to bring a valid lawsuit, such as suit against a director or officer for breach of fiduciary duty. We can defend or assert your interests strongly in these cases.
- Disputes within closely held businesses — In a closely held company or partnership, disputes among shareholders over the valuation of a shareholder’s interest or other issues can pose a real threat to the business. Our attorneys have the skills to help you resolve the issues while protecting your position.
- Other shareholder concerns — Shareholders may put forward all sorts of concerns to the board of directors, such as a company’s commitment to sustainability or objection to excessive executive compensation. Our law firm has a proven record of working with clients to respond effectively.
