Shareholder Rights

We represent majority and minority owners competing for control of closely held businesses and are conversant with the rights of "oppressed" minority shareholders, including their rights of appraisal.

We counsel shareholder clients on strategies such as so-called minority shareholder "squeeze-outs."

Because of our experience negotiating and litigating disputes among business owners, we anticipate and address potential points of conflict through well-drafted shareholder voting and buy-sell agreements.
