Protecting the Rights of a San Diego Minority Shareholder

Protecting the rights of a San Diego minority shareholder can be legally complex.  Disputes involving the protection of a minority position not only require an extensive understanding of federal and State of California law, they require tact, business savvy and in some cases an iron fist.  The experienced San Diego minority shareholder dispute attorneys at the Watkins Firm have decades of experience representing minority shareholders and helping them to protect their interests and investments.  We can help to assert your rights, protect the value of your holdings and achieve your goals and objectives.

Shareholder oppression is unfortunately quite common.  Perhaps company executives, the board or majority interests have failed to declare a satisfactory dividend (if a dividend has been declared at all).  They may attempt to refuse your access to important corporate documents or the books themselves.  They may attempt to physically lock you out or prevent you from accessing the premises.

In more nefarious scenarios, an aggressive majority interest may attempt to water down or devalue your position through a corporate acquisition or a merger with another corporate entity.  The new corporation (which they own) is structured in a way which attempts to force you as a minority shareholder to sell your position for much less than it is worth, or exchange your existing stock for stock which has much less value, power or control.

You have rights as a minority shareholder in California.  The experienced shareholder’s rights attorneys at the Watkins Firm aggressively assert and defend your rights.  We provide sound counsel while working to resolve disputes in a timely and cost-efficient manner.  If you are searching for attorneys with extensive experience protecting the rights of a San Diego minority shareholder we invite you to contact the Watkins Firm or call 858-535-1511 for a free consultation.  We have the power, resources, legal skill, experience and leverage to assert your rights and achieve a positive outcome in your matter.
