Shareholder derivative claims and breach of fiduciary duty

There are many corporations in Florida in many different industries that do many different kinds of work. However, while there are many differences between the corporations in Florida, they all have one main similarity: they all have shareholders. The number of shareholders depends on the size of the company and other factors, but the shareholders own a piece of the company. This does not necessarily mean that they run the day-to-day operations of the company, but they do have a financial interest in the company.

Common types of construction disputes that arise

There are many buildings and other structures in Florida, and none of them built themselves. Each building required construction, and given the different aspects of any building project, they often require a general contractor and then various subcontractors to complete various aspects of the project. All of the people involved must do their job in order to complete the project correctly. Then, once their jobs are completed, they need to receive the compensation that they earned.

Assisting companies when business torts arise

There are many different businesses in Florida. However, no matter how big or how small a company is, it needs to have good leadership to be successful. Obviously larger companies will need more people in positions of leadership than smaller ones, but all those in leadership positions need to work together in the best interests of the company. However, this is not always the case and sometimes people in positions of power will act on their own behalf instead of the company's behalf.

Florida office buildings and shopping center sold for $43 million

There are many office buildings, shopping centers, hotels, recreation areas and other types of commercial real estate in Florida. The main objective of the owners of these various commercial properties is generally to make money. Owning these types of properties can generate income through the rent of the tenants, but they can also be very good investments for the owners. The hope is that the value of the property will rise over the time they own it, and down the road they can sell it for millions more than they originally paid.
