As a shareholder, you are a part owner of a business and entitled to participate in certain business decisions that impact your rights and your ownership in the company. If you are having issues exercising your shareholder rights, the Dunwoody business litigation attorneys from Battleson Law are here to review your concerns and advise you of your options for resolving the matter.
Reasons for Shareholders Disputes
When you are a shareholder in a business, you have a percentage of ownership in the company and generally are entitled to a vote at shareholder meetings. When you are prevented from participating in such meetings, your rights as a shareholder are overlooked, and you are unable to exercise your ability to influence the outcome of business decisions.
Other disputes might arise regarding:
- The acts of majority shareholders against minority shareholders
- Disagreement with business management or decisions
- Questions about proper dividend distributions or contributions
No matter what your shareholder concerns entail, you should never ignore the matter, as doing so can impact your rights and profits. Instead, seek professional legal advice about the best way to resolve the dispute. This can involve informal negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or even litigation. The shareholder agreement should provide guidance for our attorneys regarding how to properly resolve your shareholder conflict in line with the contract provisions.
