The Corporate Governance practice group prosecutes derivative actions in state and federal courts throughout the country.
Derivative suits are filed by shareholders on behalf of a company. They allege that the company's directors or officers violated one or more fiduciary duties owed to the company and its shareholders. In these cases, plaintiffs do not typically seek monetary damages, but rather seek to protect their long term interests in the company by imposing corporate governance and management changes. Our Corporate Governance practice group has litigated many high profile cases and achieved significant victories for companies and their shareholders.
