As a shareholder, the officers and directors of a company owe you and the company the highest obligations of maintaining good faith and fair dealing as part of their fiduciary duties. If they breach these duties and act in their own self-interest or financial gain, rather than in the best interest of the company and its shareholders, you may be able to bring a shareholder derivative suit against them with help from Haeggquist & Eck, LLP.
The goal of derivative litigation is to remedy injury to the company, so if you are successful, the money recovered is paid back to the company. As such, derivative lawsuits serve an important function in benefitting the companies in which you have an ownership interest as a shareholder.
If you are aware of or suspect any practices or wrongdoing by companies or their executives that may be a violation of the securities laws, or may be a breach of their fiduciary duties, reach out to us today. Our shareholder derivative suits attorneys in San Diego can help you understand your rights as a shareholder in a publicly traded corporation to bring a lawsuit against officers or executives in charge of your investment.
