Common Reasons for Shareholder Disputes
When running or managing a business, many decisions must be made on a daily basis that can impact not only the welfare of the business but also the personal interests of all those involved. It is expected that from time to time owners, partners or shareholders may have disputes regarding the business. Many times these disputes can be resolved quickly without any legal action. However, in some cases, disputes can be much more serious and require the intervention of a skilled Cleveland business lawyer. Some common disputes between business shareholders include:
- Salary disputes;
- Failure of one or more shareholders to provide proper accounting;
- Breach of duties;
- Breach of the shareholder agreement;
- Disputes over the company management; and
- Trying to squeeze certain shareholders out of important business decisions.

Avoiding Shareholder Disputes
While it may not be possible to avoid all disagreements, a well-drafted shareholder agreement can help you avoid becoming involved in a long, drawn out dispute with your shareholders over issues that can be resolved at the outset. A well-drafted shareholder agreement will anticipate the needs of the shareholders as well as the trajectory of the business and will explicitly lay out terms such as pay and duties. If you do not have a shareholder agreement, our Cleveland business lawyer can assist you with drafting an agreement. Contact our office to schedule a free appointment.
