Business Litigation Lawyer in Houston, Texas
Although it is not ideal, it is an unfortunate reality that business partners and shareholders can sometimes get into disagreements. Some disagreements have the potential to become explosive and can result in serious business problems, costly lawsuits, and other potential issues. When finances, operations, or other business issues between shareholders and management start to experience trouble, shareholders may have the right to take legal action.
Do not let an LLC shareholder battle result in the complete disruption or dismantling of your company or family business! With the help of a skilled Houston business litigation attorney, you can make carefully calculated steps to protect your finances, rights, and interests during a battle involving shareholders or other business partners. My firm has exceptional experience helping parties through complicated legal dilemmas involving the operations of businesses and companies and can help you through your battle with minimal liability.
You Have Rights as a Shareholder
Under the Texas Business Corporation Act and the Texas Business Organizations Code, shareholders have many rights afforded to them, including:
- The right to inspect documents or records
- The right to inspect corporate books
- The right to inspect books and records with the assistance of an accountant
- Protection from shareholder oppression
Under these acts, the law requires corporations to pay a shareholder’s attorney fees if the shareholder has to take legal action to enforce the right to inspection in court.
Laying the Groundwork for Complex Issues
In addition to shareholder lawsuits, shareholders involved in private companies are sometimes treated unfairly, cut out of deals, or wronged by their partners.
