Corporate Governance & Shareholder Disputes

When a dispute arises over the control of a business, Burr & Forman attorneys have the experience to help. Disputes over the control of a business can range from "minority squeeze out" claims to derivative claims brought against the corporation's directors by shareholders purporting to act on the corporation's behalf.

Even the simple act of winding up a partnership or joint venture that has served its purpose can lead to litigation over how the proceeds from the business are to be divided.  If the corporation is publicly traded, the stakes may be even higher, and decisions undertaken by management may expose the directors and officers to potential class action suits initiated by shareholders.  Whatever the circumstance, though, Burr & Forman attorneys may be able to help reach a solution satisfactory for your business.
