A: A review of the company's governing documents is necessary. You should engage experienced PA counsel to review the documents, analyze the facts of the situation, and to provide further guidance, which may or may not include litigation based on the specific facts of the situation.

A: I agree with Carrie A. Ward that the company governing documents will need to be reviewed to determine if they address the situation. Whether or not the documents address this situation, there are also remedies in Pennsylvania for owners of a company that are being actively shut out of its activities. After discussing your options with counsel, litigation may be one option to consider.
