Explore Your Legal Options During Shareholder Disputes

A common type of business law problem is a shareholder dispute. Phillips, Silver, Talman, Aframe & Sinrich, P.C., represents majority and minority shareholders in disputes in Massachusetts involving:

  • Closely held businesses, including LLCs
  • Partnerships

Shareholder disputes often involve allegations of breach of fiduciary duty or underperformance. Lawyers at Phillips, Silver, Talman, Aframe & Sinrich, P.C., can evaluate a claim and make recommendations based on experience acquired over many decades.

Breach Of Fiduciary Duty

Shareholders may sue for a variety of reasons including the diminished value of their shares or failure to pay dividends or other bonuses as merited. We zealously represent both majority and minority shareholders with claims of this type.

Underperformance Claims

When one or more partners contend that another partner or partners are not performing up to par, they may believe they are justified in engineering a buyout of the underperforming partner or partners. The targeted partner, in turn, may sue for alleged wrongful termination or for losing out on distributions. Phillips, Silver, Talman, Aframe & Sinrich, P.C., has represented individuals on each side of these disputes. We make every effort to resolve such disputes in the best interests of our clients.
