Hackensack Shareholder Dispute Lawyers

New Jersey Shareholder Litigation Lawyers

Many businesses large and small, despite their commercial success, encounter conflicts and litigation. Sometimes partners, shareholders or members decide they want to move in a different direction, personal motivations change or an owner wants a larger controlling share. Whatever the situation may be, when you are involved in shareholder dispute litigation, you need an attorney who understands your business and will look after your best interests.

Our attorneys have more 30 years of experience helping businesses form and taking them apart as the situation demands.

Experience Counts

Shareholder dispute litigation is another area in which experience really counts. In New Jersey, shareholder dispute litigation is usually handled in the Chancery Division of Superior Court. In litigation we represent our client aggresivley through the time of trial if necessary and we make sure that the business is protected in the meantime. 

Service companies, manufacturers, and other companies and partnerships may require legal action to determine how to separate assets after a split. Covenants not to compete and trade secrets further complicate break-ups. Actions in this area are highly complex and intensely document driven.

At Greenberg & Lanz, our attorneys competently and thoroughly handle claims involving:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Minority shareholder and partnership rights
  • Conflicts of interest and self-dealing
  • Excessive management compensation
  • Unfair buyout agreements
  • Failure to pay dividends or distributions
  • Shareholder or partnership appraisal rights

In addition, Chancery Division has appointed Mr. Greenberg as special fiscal agent in business ownership litigation.
