Bringing a Derivative Suit
Shareholders have a right to bring a derivative action on behalf of the corporation where the board has failed to take action. Derivative actions are used most often where there has been a conflict of interest or breach of fiduciary duty on the part of a board member, executive or corporate officer.
Shareholder derivative actions are more complicated than direct shareholder actions. In these cases, the shareholder is stepping into the shoes of the board and bringing suit for the corporation. At the end of the suit, any damages will be paid to the corporation, not the shareholder.
Our attorneys can help you bring a derivative suit. We will fight to help you enforce your rights as a shareholder and work for the benefit of the corporation.
