Shareholders in California corporations have a number of significant shareholder rights to help them manage their investments and protect their interests. These protections include fiduciary duties by majority shareholders to minority shareholders, involuntary dissolution actions, inspection demands and appraisal rights upon sale.
Adishian Law Group, P.C. regularly helps shareholders exercise their shareholder rights to maximize the value of their ownership interest and minimize the risk of capital loss or “dead money.”
We assist with the “capital allocation decisions” for both majority and minority shareholder positions, as well as subsequent ongoing management of these investments.
If you are contemplating an investment in a privately held company, or you are already a minority investor, we would be happy to talk with you about your options for increasing the value of your shares.
If you are a shareholder who wants to better understand his or her shareholder rights, or a Company with a shareholder asserting shareholder rights, it is important to act quickly. Please contact us today to start a conversation.
