SederLaw’s Litigation and Business and Corporate Law Practice Groups recently obtained a favorable judgment in a closely held business dispute. Partners, Kurt L. Binder and James A. Vevone, represented a majority owner of a closely held manufacturing business faced with claims asserted by minority stockholders seeking to enjoin a special meeting of stockholders. The trial court denied the minority’s attempt to enjoin the meeting, which denial was then affirmed on appeal by a Single Justice of the Massachusetts Appeals Court. The trial court then issued an injunction in favor of our client preventing the minority stockholders from refusing the accept and implement the votes taken at the meeting.
The experienced attorneys in our Litigation Practice Group are committed to providing our clients with powerful and successful representation before the Courts and tribunals of the Commonwealth including the Superior, District, and Probate Courts, the Appeals Court and the Supreme Judicial Court; and at the federal level including the United States District Court, United States Court of Appeals, and the United States Bankruptcy Court. Our Litigation attorneys are some of the most accomplished in New England and include counsel honored as Fellows of the Litigation Counsel of America, a distinction awarded to less than one-half of 1% of American Lawyers, as well as both SuperLawyers and Top Attorneys recognition.
Though skilled trial lawyers, we are flexible enough to also resolve each client’s unique matters through, where appropriate, Alternative Dispute Resolution methods like mediation, arbitration, and negotiation. We represent clients in administrative hearings, regulatory proceedings, as well as specialized tribunals such as tax and bankruptcy Courts. We also regularly advise and represent national corporations as local counsel in trials with Massachusetts venues.
