Litigating Shareholder Disputes
Perhaps your partners or fellow shareholders have a difference of opinion on how your business should be managed. Maybe you’ve discovered some financial wrongdoing or mismanagement that harms your company or your investment. Or perhaps you’ve been accused of breaching your fiduciary duties to your company or its shareholders. As a business owner or investor, you have the right to protect your investment and the future of your company.
With years of experience in business litigation, the attorneys of StephensonLaw are here to defend your rights. Shareholder disputes can often resemble a divorce, and can become just as emotional. We work to seamlessly iron out shareholder conflicts, defend against business litigation claims, and safeguard your company’s interests and reputation with as minimal disruption as can be achieved.
Litigating Business Disputes
When your company executes any type of legally enforceable contract with an individual or business, you expect both parties to perform their end of the bargain. If the other party fails to fulfill these terms or impedes your own ability to do so, your company deserves to be made whole again, as if the contract was fully performed. You are entitled to be compensated for any damages you’ve suffered.
The attorneys at StephensonLaw will enforce your rights in any breach of contract or business dispute—from minor to material—and help you recover in damages what you have been deprived. We are prepared to help you navigate the legal landscape of business disputes, and ready to file suit to protect your interests. Look to us to protect your business when you need it most.
