A key asset of many growing companies is the experience and insight of outside advisors. Yet this asset can be jeopardized by the potential for lawsuits brought by disgruntled shareholders or others. At Flaster Greenberg we have a deep understanding of the corporate, partnership, and limited liability company laws governing such lawsuits. We know how to create a business structure that offers appropriate levels of protection to the management of the business while not undermining fundamental notions of fairness to the shareholders. In this area as in all others, we seek to create a structure tailored to the needs of the business. We also advise officers and directors on shareholder rights and agreements; and the requirements of Sarbanes Oxley (SOX), and represent such parties in connection with SEC, Justice Department and state investigations and enforcement actions.
