Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Derivative Actions

A Derivative Action is a lawsuit filed on behalf of a company by a director or shareholder of the company.

A Derivative Action is designated to overcome failures in the corporate governance of a company, especially potential conflicts of interest between company’s organs that are responsible for instigating its lawsuits. In case the party in charge of managing the company does not consider the company's well-being and does not file a lawsuit, the Derivative Action mechanism enables a fiduciary to intervene in the management of the company, thus forcing the company to file a lawsuit.

In recent years, the corporate world is witnessing a significant rise in the filing of Derivative Actions.
