Commercial Litigation

Director, Officer, & Governance Disputes

Directors and officers have duties and obligations to a variety of corporate stakeholders. These include the exercise of care, diligence and skill, fiduciary duties, statutory obligations, and shareholder obligations. Our Commercial Litigation group has significant experience acting for and against directors and officers in a wide range of disputes, including:

  • Breach of the Fiduciary Duties
  • Misappropriation of Business Opportunities
  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Oppression and Derivative Claims
  • Piercing the Corporate Veil
  • Internal Fraud and Director Misconduct
  • Corporate Ownership

The intersection and interplay between director and officer obligations and various stakeholder interests can be convoluted. We assist directors, officers, corporations and other stakeholders in navigating this complicated landscape both in advancing and defending claims.

We also assist clients with corporate governance matters at the local and national level, including:

  • Investigations
  • Policy Review and Pressure Testing
  • Policy Development/Updates
  • Regulatory Compliance Disputes
