Corporate Governance

We investigate and prosecute shareholder derivative suits when corporate boards breach their fiduciary duties owed to the company. When the value of a company is diminished because of willful mismanagement, insider self-dealing, or other acts of malfeasance, shareholders may bring a derivative suit against the board of directors and other responsible individuals in order to improve corporate governance and to recoup damages suffered by the company.
