Legal Navigation Through Shareholder Disputes

Conflicts arise even in high-performing companies. When a shareholder dispute occurs, it can significantly impact the day-to-day operations of an organization. We understand the complexities of shareholder negotiations and the necessity of a swift resolution.

For knowledgeable legal counsel, turn to the lawyers at Palmer & Manuel PLLC. Located in Dallas, our firm represents businesses in a range of shareholder dispute scenarios. We represent both majority and minority shareholders.

Disputes Emerge For Varied Reasons

Shareholder disputes can range from financial matters to business operational concerns. Those in the minority may feel that their voices are not being heard. They feel left out of the loop. Specific disputes can take many forms and include:

  • Financial issues involving dividends and returns on investments
  • Fraud and deceptive practices
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

  • Intellectual property and trade secrets
  • Shareholder oppression

Resolving Disagreements Through Negotiation Or Litigation

Alternatives to business litigation have increased in their effectiveness and sheer numbers. Trials are costly, in terms of both shareholder relationships and money that comes from a business's bottom line. Alternative dispute resolution that involves arbitration, mediation and trials using private judges has helped parties come together and find faster and more cost-effective resolutions.

Even with multiple ADR options, we recognize the value of a trial in state or federal court. When the opposing side is refusing to give any ground, we will use our proven skills to litigate shareholder disputes.
