Best & Flanagan’s trial lawyers understand that your business is your life. When a shareholder dispute arises, our litigators will move swiftly to protect the business you’ve spent your life building. Our team will work with you to understand your business goals, how they may be impacted by a dispute, and how we can craft a settlement or litigation strategy to help you achieve them. We’ve worked with both majority and minority shareholders to develop creative solutions to resolve disputes in closely-held companies, whether that means settling early to mitigate costs or trying cases in court to protect our clients’ rights.
We work closely with our business law practice group to create and execute a strategy suited to your business needs. While we prepare every case like it will go to trial, we also look for practical solutions that will help you achieve your business objectives.
No matter which side of a shareholder dispute you’re on, we have the experience both in and out of the courtroom to help you protect your life’s work. Our lawyers have:
- Tried three-day bench trial on behalf of a majority shareholder.
- Arbitrated multi-million dollar commercial contract disputes on behalf of minority shareholders.
- Secured early buy-out settlement on behalf of majority shareholders to resolve minority shareholder breach of fiduciary duty claim.
