Robbins Arroyo LLP assists individual and institutional shareholders who demand corporate integrity, honesty, and accountability by taking aggressive legal action to achieve corporate governance reform, removal of officers or directors, monetary payments in the form of damages, recovery of ill-gotten gains, and to vindicate their voting rights in connection with a corporate acquisition, merger, or similar combination transaction.
A shareholder rights action, whether brought directly or derivatively, is typically brought against insiders of the company, such as the executive officers, directors, or board members, who harmed the corporation through their wrongdoing. Through legal action asserting shareholders’ rights, a single shareholder can act on the company’s behalf to remedy these harms, strengthen and protect the company from future wrongdoing, recover for the harm caused to shareholder, and improve shareholder confidence in the company’s leadership.
