Issues include: directors and officers liability; self-dealing; negligence; oppression; and misrepresentation in contractual formation.
Whether for public companies or private corporations, the rights and remedies of minority and dissenting shareholders are ever expanding.
Our litigators know precisely how best to advance those shareholder interests against the corporations in which they invest, the boards that manage the corporations, other shareholders, and the brokers who had them acquire shares. And they know how to do so before the courts or in private arbitration to ensure that shareholders are treated fairly and justly.
But we also understand very well the limits of such shareholder rights. Corporations and boards of directors have, as a matter of course, frequently turned to us to enforce those limits.
