RD Business Transaction attorneys provide representation in connection with minority shareholder oppression. This corporate action takes place when a shareholder or a group of shareholders who own a majority of a company’s shares use their control to operate the company for their advantage at the expense of minority shareholders. In this instance, there is likely a change in the standards of fair practices and an abuse of those practices to which shareholders are accustomed. Oppression is created as a result.

Several key examples of oppressive acts include:

  • Limited ability to be involved in company decisions
  • Removal from management
  • Dilution of minority shares
  • Removal from profit participation
  • Change in the foundation for how a company relationship began
  • Change in business practices
