Shareholder Litigation and Derivative Actions
The litigation lawyers at LA Law Firm represent corporations, limited liability companies, directors, corporate officers, shareholders and third parties who are involved in derivative suits in California. For more than 20 years, we have successfully represented and protected our clients against shareholders’ claims and allegations of misconduct, self dealings or fraud. We have the required legal expertise to effectively represent and protect your interest when faced with claims brought against the company, the directors or the majority shareholders.
If you have received a demand letter or a demand for action letter from a shareholder, or have been named as a defendant in a derivative lawsuit, you should promptly contact an experienced shareholder litigation lawyer. Under both California and Delaware laws, you have a very narrow window of opportunity to adopt and implement some of the most effective defensive strategies, which will allow you to defeat frivolous derivative claims at the very early stage of litigation.
We also represent the minority shareholders against the predatory and unlawful practices of the majority shareholders. If you believe that the company’s directors or the majority shareholders have engaged in fraudulent activities, self-dealings or unlawful practices to enrich themselves or to exclude the minority shareholders from receiving their shares of the profits, we can help you to reclaim your fair share.
Because of the complexity of shareholder litigation and the necessity of obtaining evidence quickly, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to begin developing an effective litigation strategy. Contact the experts at LA Law Firm today for a consultation.
Understanding Your Rights In A Shareholder Derivative Suit
Whether you are a shareholder seeking to file a derivative suit against a corporate director or a third party, or such a director or third party, the outcome of litigation can substantially affect your personal or corporate financial interest.
In addition to following exhaustive pleading and other procedural requirements, extensive evidence gathering of financial data, correspondence and other records is an indispensable part of building an effective legal strategy — whether plaintiff or defendant. Having developed winning litigation skills and aggressive negotiation tactics, we will ensure that whichever side of a derivative suit our clients are on, they will be positioned for a favorable outcome.
