Legal Rights of Minority Shareholders

Very few business relationships last forever. You put a lot of work and energy into your business in order to develop it. However, minority shareholders or minority partners are frequently treated unfairly by the majority. You maybe squeezed out, or your interest may be diluted, or you may basically be squeezed out of the business. If this has happened to you, you should contact the lawyers of Bellas & Wachowski.

We handle business litigation matters including cases involving minority shareholder rights, terminations, franchise agreements, or fraud. Illinois law has some unique provisions which protect the interest of minority shareholders and allow you to recover the value of your minority interest even if you are terminated from employment.

We know the law in this area and have litigated many cases involving these issues. We have the advantage over bigger firms in that we are leaner and can operate at a more cost efficient level. Each case is led by an experienced partner and we offer flexible fee arrangements that fit your needs and the type of case you are involved with.

Our initial consultation is free.

If you are a minority business owner, shareholder, partner, or member of an LLC, you have rights. Let us help you in enforcing those rights. Contact George Bellas at 847.823.9030 Ext: 219 or george@bellas-wachowski.com and put over 37 years of experience to work on your behalf.
