Igor Živkovski, Živković Samardžić Corporate and M&A Partner, wrote an article on minority shareholders’ rights, which was published in the “Advokatska kancelarija” magazine’s May issue.
The protection of the rights of minority shareholders is an important issue of corporate governance and company law regulations, which has a transnational character. In order to provide an adequate protection to minority shareholders, it is necessary to understand and define the concept of minority shareholders, as well as the mechanisms for establishing a balance between the majority and minority in the company, so that the expropriation of minority rights can be prevented.
The subject of this article is defining different categories of minority shareholders including the available protection mechanisms. The goal of the research is defining the criteria used for determining the notion of minority shareholders, identifying different categories of minority shareholders and providing both normative and “soft law” mechanisms for the protection of minority shareholders.
