When the documents addressing corporate governance and ownership are not clear, disputes inevitably follow. That is what happened to a successful technology company based in DuPage County. A high-level executive left for new opportunities and shortly after claimed he actually owned 33% of the company.
The claims jeopardized the business and its owners. Following a week-long bench trial, Tomlinson & Shapiro attorneys Michael Shapiro, Michael Tomlinson, and Elizabeth Gomez won a ruling declaring that the former executive had no ownership interest in the company.
