As experienced Chicago corporate & shareholder litigation lawyers, the team at King & Jones knows that internal disputes can be just as serious or more so than threats from the outside, such as breach of contract disputes or business torts. Our firm deals with complex courtroom litigation and arbitration in all types of commercial matters, including corporate and shareholder litigation, in Chicago and across the country.
Corporate disputes may be internal, such as litigation over the conduct of officers and directors, decisions about whether to distribute cash flow or reinvest in the business, or corporate restructuring. Disputes can be external as well, including issues surrounding mergers & business acquisitions, hostile takeovers, and antitrust litigation. Officers and directors can be sued for breach of fiduciary duties they owe to shareholders or the corporation.
Corporate D&O insurance protects against negligence that damages the interests of employees or shareholders, but this insurance is typically full of exclusionary language regarding the kinds of claims or types of acts that may be covered. The attorneys at King & Jones have decades of experience handling insurance litigation and coverage disputes to ensure policyholders get the benefits owed to them under their policy. As to claims involving corporate malfeasance, our firm’s experience in legal and accounting malpractice practice means we are well-positioned to investigate allegations of corporate neglect and proceed accordingly.

“I hired Peter to represent my co-directors and me in a breach of fiduciary duty dispute with a co-owner. Peter and his partner Bill joined our trial team just prior to trial and helped us obtain a complete victory at trial. Peter had an uncanny ability to focus on what was important to succeed at trial. Peter was well prepared, organized and thoughtful.” – Oliver Nicklin
