David F. Johnson co-presented “Minority Investor Rights in Private Companies: Buy-Sell Agreements, Court-Ordered Buyouts, Breach of Fiduciary Duty” for a nationwide audience for Stafford Webinars on January 20, 2021. David was honored to present with Peter A. Mahler and Peter J. Sluka from Farrell Fritz, PC from New York.  The presenters discussed the rights of minority investors in private companies (including the right to vote, inspect books and records, preemptive rights, derivative actions, petition for dissolution, and receiverships), the limitations on those rights (expulsion, dilution, transfer limitations, freeze out merger), and factors to consider in drafting a buy-out agreement and securing a buyout of their ownership stake.
