Minority Shareholders Rights

Even if you have the majority controlling interest in a company, it’s vital that you remain fully aware of the rights of minority shareholders.

If they have legitimate expectations which which are not being met, you are opening yourself up to potential litigation.

And if you are a minority shareholder – or are becoming one – you need someone lookingout for your rights. This means that it is important for all involved that the expectations of minority shareholders are documented at the outset and then the company and the majority shareholders have regard to these, unless they want to involve themselves in dispute resolution.
