Probate & Trust Administration

CUTLER & WILENSKY LLP’s business attorneys handle shareholder disputes involving closely held companies and partnerships, as well as disputes involving claims brought by beneficiaries of trusts. These disputes are also known as derivative actions. 

Derivative shareholder lawsuits are highly complex business disputes that require well grounded legal experience and knowledge. These cases are known as complex litigation because they involve unique legal principles and are document intensive cases requiring the identification, collection, review and analysis of extensive corporate documentation and the applications of complex legal principles.

Our Boston business attorneys have represented closely held companies and trusts, as well as individual shareholders, officers and trustees, as well as beneficiaries of trusts in both Federal and State courts in derivative actions

The industry sectors that CW's business lawyers have served in derivative lawsuits include software companies, real estate, distributors, insurance brokers and information technology.
