Important to Understand
- Oppression claims: This type of litigation arises when majority shareholders engage in conduct that oppresses the rights of minority shareholders, such as marginalizing them from decision-making processes or misuse of company assets.
- Breach of fiduciary duty claims: Shareholders have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the company and its shareholders, and breaches of this duty can result in litigation.
- Derivative actions: Shareholders may bring derivative actions to recover damages or seek remedies on behalf of the company for actions taken by officers or directors.
- Freeze-out or buy-out claims: Majority shareholders may sometimes attempt to force out minority shareholders from the company or buy out their shares for less than their fair value. In such cases, litigation may arise.
Many companies have multiple shareholders, and while the majority often rules in decision-making, minority shareholders may face challenges when they feel their rights are being violated. They may feel that they are being unfairly excluded from significant business decisions or that their ownership rights are being diluted by illegal actions. In these situations, shareholder dispute litigation can help minority shareholders to protect their investments.
