Not Sure What Your Rights Are as a Shareholder in New Jersey?

Before I discuss the title of this page, let me ask you a few simple questions.

  • Are you knowledgeable about where you stand or what your rights are under an existing shareholder agreement that you may have signed?
  • Do you have a shareholder agreement that has been violated, ignored or breached by a co-shareholder(s)?
  • Have you or your company been threatened with litigation by a co-shareholder, creditor, government agency, etc.?
  • Are you contemplating filing a shareholder’s rights lawsuit or are you already involved in a shareholder dispute?

If the answer to any one of these questions is yes, then you’ve come to the right place.

I’ve written this page with you in mind. Hanlon Niemann & Wright has negotiated and written all types of shareholder agreements addressing all types of business relationships and issues for over 40 years.

I consulted with Mr. Niemann following a recommendation from an associate in Brick, New Jersey. I was told that Mr. Niemann would be an excellent person to discuss an investment opportunity which was represented to me as very profitable. Mr. Niemann met with me promptly and reviewed the information which was given by the promoter. After having considered the promotional information, Mr. Niemann cautioned me against the investment. He requested a four-way conference be set up so that he could meet face to face, eye to eye with the promoter of this opportunity. After several hours of intense questioning and discussion, Mr. Niemann courteously and professionally concluded the meeting, whereupon he immediately told me not to invest a single penny into this scam as I would lose my investment. At the time, I was looking to invest several hundred thousand dollars. Thank God I listened to Mr. Niemann.

Since our meeting, I have learned that the deal was, in fact, a scam and that I would have lost my entire investment. The straight-talking highly investigative nature of Mr. Niemann’s questioning and insight coupled with his significant past business experience was of invaluable help to me.

In my negotiations with a large international corporation, Fredrick P. Niemann worked with me to the end.  They were thoughtful and proactive in identifying the issues of concern to me, issues I hadn’t even thought of.  I was very satisfied with the services they rendered.
