Shareholder Disputes

Posted in Shareholder Disputes

Resolving internal business disputes can be as complex as handling problems with external entities such as suppliers, contractors and customers. State laws set forth rules that must be followed in the management and operation of corporate entities. They spell out the rights and obligations of the business owners and managers. Additionally, shareholders, LLC members and partners of a business enter into written agreements which detail who will be directors and managing members, provide rules about how decisions will be made and set limits on the sale or transfer of interests in the business and more.
