Corporate Board of Director disputes are a contingent liability which consumes corporate resources and distracts the Board or individual Directors from their mission of managing a San Diego or Southern California corporation. Directors carry substantial responsibilities and legal duties and obligations that expose them to litigation from time to time. There may be accusations of inside influence, profiteering or “sweetheart deals” that unduly enrich a Director at the expense of a corporation they serve. Many Directors on corporate boards serve in this capacity for multiple entities, and they are often in a position to do so due to their own business ownership and management experience.
If one of their own businesses has a relationship with a company they serve as a Director, they must conduct all transactions at “arm’s length” to ensure that no accusations of false dealings or violation of fiduciary duties can be asserted. Corporate Board of Director disputes can also involve derivative lawsuits, where corporate minority shareholders bring a suit against the company due to concerns over the direction of the corporation or mis-management.
