While closely held corporations offer outstanding opportunities for their shareholders, those with controlling interests can take advantage of the minority shareholders. In both New York and New Jersey, the law protects an oppressed shareholder from abuse and oppression by majority shareholders, including when the company refuses to pay a minority shareholder his or her fair share of the company's profits.
Our firm understands the protections offered under these laws and the remedies they potentially, such as the right to review the corporate books and records, money damages, or a forced buy-out of an oppressed stockholder's stock at its fair market value. Our lawyers also help minority shareholders who have been denied continued employment and fair wages that are part of their reasonable expectations as shareholders in a closely held corporation.Partnership Disputes
