Shareholder Oppression

Fryar Law Firm has long held the position of one of the leaders in the development of the shareholder oppression cause of action. We represent business owners and partners in all types of internal disputes and have been successful in obtaining monetary relief and engineering buy-out solutions for minority shareholders and partners who are treated unfairly.

We have focused our practice on the legal rights and duties in closely-held corporations, S-corporations, partnerships, and other private business entities. Our cases involve issues of breach of fiduciary duties, shareholder rights, inspection of corporate records, squeeze-outs, freeze-outs, and buy-outs. We represent business owners in disputes with their co-owners, shareholders, corporate officers and directors, general partners, limited partners, and members of limited liability companies. We assist minority shareholders in protecting their rights and resisting minority shareholder oppression and squeeze-outs. We assist majority owners who are accused of wrong-doing or who believe they are being set up for a lawsuit. We represent partners engaged in ending or splitting up their businesses.
