What are Fiduciary Duties for NY and NJ Shareholders?

The fiduciary duties and obligations of a shareholder in a business in New York or New Jersey must follow very specific rules but these rules can be summarized into a very general description. The overall fiduciary duties of a shareholder are to (a) to not assume or engage in personal interests which are incompatible with the interests of the corporation and (b) never to allow their private interests to conflict with corporate interests.

When dealing with a shareholder dispute it is important to understand your rights and the fiduciary duties and obligations that are expected of shareholders.
