Davis Toft Defends Involuntary Corporate Dissolution Action And Crafts Shareholder Buyout Agreement
Davis Toft assisted a 50% shareholder of a corporation that manufactured athletic apparel in a lawsuit whereby the holder of the remaining 50% of the shares of the corporation initiated an involuntary dissolution action. With the assistance of Davis Toft, the corporation was not dissolved. Moreover, Davis Toft’s client was able to purchase the remaining 50% of the shares from the shareholder who initiated the action, and the corporation is still doing business to this day.
Federal Court Summary Judgment Victory
In a matter before the California District Court, the firm represented a large commercial property company in a contract dispute arising out of a breach of a purchase agreement on a 150,000 square foot building in Orange County, California. Our client, the seller of the property, brought an action against the non-compliant purchaser who had refused to close the sale, alleging that the environmental condition of the property, including existence of various hydrocarbons and other toxic chemicals on the site, had been misrepresented. We successfully prosecuted a motion for summary judgment that resulted in judgment in favor of our client in excess of $300,000.
