Atlanta Shareholder Lawsuit Attorneys
Under Georgia law, the directors and officers of a corporation are obligated to make good faith decisions on behalf of the company and its shareholders. If a company director or corporate officer breaches his or her duty to the corporation, shareholders can potentially bring legal action against that director or officer and seek damages for their losses.
The Georgia law firm of Garland, Samuel & Loeb has won many significant victories. Our civil litigation lawyers represented the plaintiffs in Peller v. The Southern Co., a shareholder derivative action filed against the directors of The Southern Company and Georgia Power Company alleging waste, mismanagement and negligence in planning and building two of their power facilities. The case settled for $9 million.*
