There are a variety of reasons you may experience a serious disagreement
with a fellow shareholder. Some of the most common reasons for controversy
arise from decisions by a company’s owners or operators, failure
to agree on the terms of a sale, suspected dishonesty or underhanded practices
by corporate officers, and consequential decisions being made without
consulting shareholders or fellow officers. Sometimes, such disagreements
are serious enough to cause major legal and financial issues, especially
if they are not dealt with promptly and efficiently.
If you are a private business owner and have gone into business with a
friend or family member, there may not be a partnership agreement or contract
in place. In such cases, it is absolutely necessary for the future success
of your business and your partnership that you bring in a knowledgeable
mediator when conflict arises.
If you are experiencing a shareholder dispute, your first course of action
should be to consult an experienced business litigation attorney. They
can help you assess your shareholder agreement or contract, relevant state
laws, and help you fill in the gaps when neither of these specify exactly
how your conflict should be resolved. In order to get your dispute resolved
as soon as possible, you will need a professional on your side.
