Directors, officers and majority owners all owe fiduciary duties to the corporation and its shareholders. The corporation may owe duties of indemnification to its directors and officers. Managing these duties and responsibilities requires a thorough understanding of the laws applicable to corporate governance.
The attorneys at Burkhalter Kessler Clement & George LLP understand the position of trust and importance that directors and officers should have with their shareholders, particularly when it comes to their policies, procedures, and systems. However, far too often, that trust is put in question, requiring proactive legal intervention in cases that include:
- Shareholder lawsuits, including derivative claims
- Disputes involving mergers, acquisitions, and dissolutions
- Receiverships involving bankruptcies and restructurings, including the selection of a receiver
- Business divorces, in which infighting between ownership factions is harming the performance or value of the company
