St. Charles, Geneva And Batavia Minority Shareholder Representation
If you are a minority shareholder in a business, you are entitled to have a voice at the boardroom table. Illinois is a state that has long recognized and supported democracy rules in corporate management. Majority owners, however, often neglect the concerns of individual shareholders and minority partners, thereby violating a basic tenant of democracy rules, namely, “cumulative voting” at the shareholder level of management.
Senior partners Edgar Petti and Thomas Murphy each have more than 50 years of corporate litigation experience, providing legal counsel for minority shareholders of corporations throughout DuPage, Kane and Cook Counties.
