Negotiation often resolves the matter or at least a significant portion of the issue(s) in dispute. Mediation and arbitration are efficient alternatives to a trial that resolve the dispute in a shorter time frame with less cost. Mediation and arbitration are structured environments where Watkins Firm attorneys can advocate and influence the ultimate outcome on behalf of our clients. We prepare every case as is if it going to trial. Our extensive successful trial record and reputation in San Diego provide strength to your position in the dispute. The other parties in the dispute know you are represented by proven counsel who are prepared to take the matter to Court. This provides incentive for opposing counsel to avoid the cost, time and risk of a trial and work cooperatively with our Watkins Firm attorneys to resolve the matter.
Shareholder disputes distract key players from the principle focus of managing the profitable operations of the company. Deeply rooted disputes may involve concerns regarding executive decision making or the direction of the company. In these cases Watkins Firm attorneys can bring a derivative lawsuit on behalf of the corporation. Shareholder derivative actions are much more legally complex than direct shareholder actions. In a derivative lawsuit, the shareholder is stepping into the shoes of corporate executives or the board and bringing suit on behalf of the corporation.
If you are concerned about your rights as a shareholder or need the advice of experienced and proven San Diego shareholder dispute resolution attorneys we invite you to review the strong recommendations of our clients and contact the Watkins Firm or call 858-535-1511 for a complimentary consultation today.
