Minority Oppression & Shareholder Rights Cases in Seattle

Representing Shareholders in Disputes

While a minority shareholder’s livelihood may be at stake in a case of minority oppression, such a case can have huge implications for the liability of the company, as well as for the majority shareholders.

What Duties Do Share Holders Have?

Shareholders in a corporation owe special types of duties to the company and to one another. These shareholder duties are known as fiduciary duties. The majority shareholders of the corporation owe duties to the minority shareholders, and vice-versa. All company shareholders owe their shareholder duties to the company, as well.

In the context of a closely-held corporation, the shareholders’ duties become especially important, and company disputes about minority oppression can become deeply personal. If the shareholders or partners are unable to come to terms with critical issues, business litigation often becomes necessary to protect the company or a shareholder’s rights. When that happens, it is essential to retain a company attorney or corporate lawyer who is skilled in business litigation.
