Corporate Law and Governance
An Experienced Corporate & Transactional Law Team
The ownership and operation of business entities, especially those that are closely held, implicates a broad array of fiduciary duties. Our business law attorneys have considerable experience assisting clients in navigating every aspect of this rich and varied landscape. We represent and advise a full spectrum of stakeholders with regard to fiduciary relationships and duties, from minority owners to majority/controlling owners to directors, officers and managers. We also assist clients with entity formation and maintenance including preparation, review and updating of articles of incorporation or organization, bylaws, operating agreements, shareholder agreements, partnership or joint venture agreements, and resolutions/written consents of equity owners or management.
Our work in this area also informs our business litigation practice, which frequently involves the prosecution of, or defense against, claims that a party has breached fiduciary duties in a closely held business entity. In this regard, we have represented minority owners, majority or controlling owners, directors/managers, general and limited partners and joint venturers, in cases involving Michigan law as well as Delaware law and the laws of various other states and jurisdictions.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss your specific questions and needs, and to bring our expertise and skill to bear on your behalf.
