I had this exact thing happen to a franchisee client. He failed to include the name of his corporation in… [read post]

A common problem in close corporations or small 2-3 member LLCs is what happens if there is a dispute between the shareholders.  A common misconception is that majority ownership allows owners to do whatever they want with “their” company and that everyone else is along for the ride.  It would appear that a minority shareholder [...] [read post]
