Investor and Shareholder Issues

Representation from a Business Litigation Attorney in Los Angeles

Without the efforts and input of investors and shareholders, it would be a hard road to plow within the field of business. When disputes, problems, or improprieties arise with both of these important groups, it can lead to serious legal troubles and put a great strain upon a business. Swift legal action must be taken to protect your company's best interests, and a business litigation attorney can provide this important representation.

Issues with an investor generally surround contract disputes. A common example is a failure to provide financing for which an investor was contractually obligated. A business will forge ahead with what it needs to accomplish on the promise of a much-needed cash influx. When the money never arrives, it can leave a company in a truly untenable position.

As the business scrambles to find alternative financing, the bottom line suffers greatly. Shareholder problems arise out of improper sales of restricted stocks or other actions which are damaging to a corporation. Such conflicts can be draining upon the resources of a business and can do it irreparable harm. Both investor and stockholder issues must thus be brought to resolution as soon as possible through diligent legal efforts.

Problems with Investors

Without a doubt, investors are a very important part of any business venture. Capital is needed for almost any company startup, and finding sources of funding is critical to your success. Unfortunately, unexpected problems sometimes arise that can lead to serious financial and legal trouble if not promptly addressed. Equally as important is a protection of your own well-established business' interests as an investor. For legal counsel regarding all manner of business investor issues, a business litigation attorney is prepared to advocate for you.

A common investor issue is the "falling through" of funding. You needed money to get your enterprise off and running or perhaps to acquire an existing business and when the investor did not live up to his contractual end of the bargain, you stood in peril. Last minute funding efforts were pursued, which proved to be an overly expensive prospect.

Likewise, when your own company's investments are squandered by acts of broker misconduct, you can also lose a tremendous amount of capital. While complaining to the SEC and state regulatory agencies may lead to disciplinary actions, you will need a strong and capable attorney to fight for a recovery of financial losses.
