Shareholder Issues

New York, New York, Shareholder Litigation Attorney

Executives and CEOs have a fiduciary responsibility to shareholders. When corporate executives mismanage a company they can be held financially accountable to shareholders who suffer economic harm as a result. At the Law Office of Rubin Ferziger, our attorney consults financial experts, forensic accountants and economists in reviewing the actions and decisions of corporate executives. As your attorney, Mr. Ferziger considers market conditions and best practices to determine if executives acted negligently or violated their fiduciary responsibility to shareholders. In this connection, our office gathers financial records and may audit aspects of a company's performance to determine if decisions on the part of management are directly related to poor company performance and a loss in shareholder value.

If you believe you have suffered economic harm due to negligence or general malfeasance on the part of corporate management, contact shareholder litigation attorney Rubin Ferziger today to schedule an appointment and discuss your case.

Shareholder Litigation - Forms of Financial Mismanagement

The Law Office of Rubin Ferziger counsels and represents shareholders in cases involving the following:

  • Violations of Sarbanes-Oxley on the part of executives
  • Unreasonable executive compensation

Violations of Fiduciary Responsibility and Shareholder Litigation

CEOs or a Board of Directors can be held financially accountable for violating their fiduciary responsibility to shareholders if a direct link can be established between actions and decisions on their part and economic harm suffered by shareholders. Executives and CEOs often try to claim their decisions were perfectly reasonable within the context of market conditions. If that is the case, evidence directly linking certain actions and decisions to specific kinds of economic harm must be demonstrated.

However, if violations of federal or state law are involved, strict liability attaches to the actions and decisions of executives. As your attorney, Mr. Ferziger demonstrates how the actions on the part of corporate management violated best practices, principles of fiduciary responsibility and state and federal law, when applicable. Our office works with economists to determine the amount of financial harm suffered and demands appropriate compensation accordingly.
