An issue we are seeing more frequently is minority shareholders views’ being disregarded by the majority shareholder. This typically occurs when there are no shareholder agreements and the majority shareholder believe it is their way or the highway. Often the majority shareholder established the company and hold the view that it is ‘theirs’.
