Minority Shareholder Litigation
Our firm has a record of success with these cases and we are willing to consult with you if you believe you have been wronged.
When corporate management has committed fraudulent conduct, shareholder oppression or breach of fiduciary duties, they have violated the rights of minority shareholders. The law in Montana states “[T]he fiduciary duty between stockholders of a close corporation is one of the utmost good faith and loyalty.” Often a breach of this duty can result in tremendous financial loss for shareholders, especially when stake in the company is relied on for retirement. ERISA was established to protect individuals enrolled in retirement and health plans in private companies and can offer relief if breaches occur. For minority shareholders, a successful outcome is incredibly important and can have large impacts to their quality of life and ability to retire.
