Schafer and Weiner Resolves Shareholder Oppression Case

August, 2022

Schafer and Weiner’s experience is not limited to insolvency matters.  Schafer and Weiner regularly assists clients in business litigation, including shareholder disputes.  John Stockdale, Jr., Joseph Grekin, and Brandi M. Dobbs defended a 50% shareholder from the other 50% shareholder’s claims of shareholder oppression under the Business Corporation Act.  After significant discovery, mediation, and weighing the costs of litigation, S&W’s client purchased the remaining 50% of the shares at an amount that was less than 25% sought by the plaintiff-shareholder.
