Shareholder and Director/Officer Litigation

Shareholders have a stake in the businesses in which they have invested. Whether they are concerned with the viability of the daily operations of an organization or they fear that management is not acting financially responsible, it is often necessary to resolve disputes through the legal process.

At Meyner and Landis LLP, we have extensive experience handling complex cases centering on shareholder and director/officer litigation. In this practice area, our cases typically fall into one of three categories.

  • Representing officers and directors who are the targets of claims of breach of fiduciary duty, fraud or misrepresentation;
  • Representing the corporate entity that is the target or the nominal defendant in a shareholder derivative action; or
  • Representing shareholders filing derivative suits on behalf of the company or individually against controlling shareholders.

Additionally, we seek to maximize the insurance protection that may be available to clients through D&O policies.

No matter the complexity of your situation, an experienced attorney can provide guidance. Contact our office to speak with a member of our Commercial Litigation Group.
