Successful suit by minority shareholder against majority owners of family business enterprise

Client: A Minority Shareholder

To assist our client, a minority shareholder who was being denied her share of the profits in a lucrative family business, we filed suit against the majority owners alleging breach of fiduciary duty. After filing suit and obtaining access to certain business and financial records, we employed forensic accountants and valuation experts to calculate the value of the client’s losses and ownership share. As discovery demonstrated the unfairness of the majority’s actions, we obtained a successful settlement of the lawsuit for our client through mediation efforts.
