Business, Corporate & Partnership Disputes
Lingering business disputes cost money and disrupt the operations of a corporation or partnership. Since 1993, Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky Wotkyns LLP has helped businesses mitigate risks of disputes and has litigated resolutions. We are an experienced national trial law firm that successfully handles complex, high-stakes litigation.
Our attorneys represent businesses, directors, stockholders, partners and financial institutions in claims involving dissolution, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duties and other complicated disputes. We meticulously prepare for trial, where we aggressively advocate our client’s position. We also negotiate settlements, when cost, relationships, time and other factors make agreement attractive to our client.
Our corporate litigation lawyers represent multinational corporations and their officers, directors and executives. We also may bring a claim on behalf of a class of stockholders. We litigate all types of corporate disputes, including:
- Breach of fiduciary duty. The board of directors has a duty of loyalty and a duty of care to the stockholders, which may give rise to a breach claim.
- Stockholder disputes. Stockholders may have a variety of claims related to the board’s conflict of interests, stock fraud, stock valuation and stock offerings.
- Mergers. A number of issues may arise during and upon completion of a corporate merger, including price paid for the company, fairness of stockholder vote, terms of the agreement, breach of fiduciary duty and post-merger jobs of executives and managers of the companies.
