Shareholder Litigation Lawyer
Lawsuits brought by shareholders against a third party on behalf of an entire corporation are referred to as shareholder derivative lawsuits. Under ordinary circumstances, business managers are the ones to press lawsuits for the company, but these proceedings were created to give power to the shareholders when they feel the company in which they have invested money into is under attack.
Often, shareholder suits commonly involve:
- Insider trading
- Misleading or fraudulent financial statements
- Conflicts of interest
- Breaches of duty
- Unauthorized payments made on behalf of the company
If you are a shareholder who believes that you have been financially injured by the conduct of the company’s officers and/or directors, speak with one of our attorneys to evaluate your rights and options.
