Corporate and Shareholder Litigation

Powerplays. Philosophical differences. Fraud allegations. Cashing out. Conflicts among shareholders can threaten the very existence of the business and create complex legal issues requiring sophisticated representation. The Michigan business litigation attorneys of O'Reilly Rancilio have extensive experience asserting the legal rights and financial interests of shareholders or business partners in these disputes, and protecting the business itself from the fallout.

Our law firm has represented co-owners, majority and minority shareholders of corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and professional associations. Based in Sterling Heights, we provide trial advocacy and alternative dispute resolution services to clients in Macomb County, the Detroit metropolitan area, and throughout Michigan.

O'Reilly Rancilio routinely handles disputes in succession of family-owned businesses, as in a recent case of a company owned by three brothers and two employees; we represented one brother who wanted to be bought out as the next generation was taking the helm. Through lengthy arbitration, we resolved the complex issues of determining the value of his share. In a similar case that resulted in a reported decision, we went to trial over one faction's move to put the second generation of owners in control to the detriment of the other shareholders and the value of their stake.

The legal team at O'Reilly Rancilio includes accomplished arbitrators, mediators, and trial lawyers, and we have the in-house acumen to address business valuations, partner disputes, tax ramifications, business succession, corporate and shareholder litigation, and other issues involved in civil litigation of internal disputes.
