From beginning to end, litigation of shareholder disputes is always challenging particularly for closely-held companies. Join seasoned commercial litigation trial attorneys Julie Vacura and Chris Kayser of Larkins Vacura and Susan Marmaduke of Harrang Long Gary Rudnick, as they explore the thorny legal, factual and strategic issues that arise from the filing of the complaint to the trial of a derivative suit of a closely-held corporation. The CLE will examine the types of claims to file and not to file, the equitable relief available, the role of corporate counsel, the use of the statutory buy-out provision to preempt litigation and strategies for presenting claims at trial and preserving entitlement to attorney fees.
