Under appropriate circumstances, shareholders have the right demand an end to corporate abuse, graft, or other misconduct. If shareholder demands are ignored, a derivative lawsuit can be initiated on behalf of the corporation, to correct improprieties. These types of cases are often highly complex, requiring a deep understanding of business litigation. If you are a shareholder in a company that is being mismanaged or tainted by graft and corruption, or, if you are an officer of a corporation threatened with a meritless derivative lawsuit, we are here to advise and assist.
Many small and mid-sized businesses are initially formed as partnerships between two or more individuals. The various rights and responsibilities of each of partner is usually contained within a partnership agreement, or some other agreement between the parties. During the initial formation of the partnership, it is important to be as detailed as possible with respect to the rights and responsibilities of each of the parties. When a dispute arises between the partners, the first goal should be the continuation of business as usual while differences are negotiated. Where amicable resolution is impossible, and litigation is necessary, we are here to assist.
