How Do I File A Shareholder Derivative Lawsuit?

 

If you feel that the executives of your company have acted in bad faith, then you, as an investor, or together with a group of investors can seek a legal remedy to compel the board to “right the ship.” The ultimate goal of a shareholder derivative lawsuit is to prevent harm to the company. Investors can challenge negligent corporate behavior to protect the company’s shareholders and prevent them from endangering the company.

 

At Nation Lawyers, we can help you, whether you are an institutional investor or an individual shareholder, to stand up to negligent executives in a shareholder derivative lawsuit. 

 

Who Benefits From A Shareholder Derivative Lawsuit?

 

Shareholder derivative lawsuits are designed to remedy executive fraud and corporate malfeasance. They are meant to benefit the company as a whole by giving shareholders a means to hold executives and other corporate officers accountable. Many shareholders and institutional investors feel that they do not have the power to challenge an executive. However, securities law gives them an outlet to do, allowing them to protect both their investment and the company.

 

At Nation Lawyers, our attorneys can help shareholders, and institutional investors fight executive negligence and corporate misconduct, including:

 

  • Breach of Duty of Care: 
  • Breach of Duty of Loyalty: 
  • Accounting Malpractice: 
  • Inappropriate Mergers and Acquisitions: 
  • Violations of Environmental Law
  • Violations of Wage and Hour Regulations
  • Violations of Workplace Safety Guidelines

 

How Can A Shareholder Derivative Lawsuit Help Me?

 

The goal of shareholder derivative actions is to “right the corporate ship” and institute reforms in the structure of corporate governance that benefit the company as a whole. Ultimately, you want to make sure that such acts of negligence and wrongdoing never happen again and that all shareholders and investors continue to benefit from the company. A shareholder derivative suit is not about seeking financial compensation for yourself. Instead, it is about protecting your long term financial investment in the company, along with that of your fellow shareholders. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is a shareholder derivative action?

 

A derivative action is a lawsuit filed by shareholders on behalf of the company to enforce meaningful change in corporate governance when an executive or other officer commits fraud or acts negligently.

 

Why should I file a derivative action?

 

A derivative action is not about seeking financial compensation per se; however, it is about protecting your long term interests in the company.

 

Do I need to file a shareholder derivative lawsuit?

 

You may have other options, each with their own risks and benefits. You could try writing a letter to the board explaining what is happening. You could also attempt to contact the proper regulating authority such as the SEC or FINRA. However, a shareholder derivative lawsuit may give you the most control over the situation.

 

How do I know if a lawsuit is necessary?

 

Sometimes executives make decisions, and while we may disagree, those decisions do not rise to the level of a shareholder derivative lawsuit. If the executive actions include fraud, negligence, self-interest, or another type of malfeasance, it may be time for a shareholder derivative lawsuit.
