Newbie here, describing a situation -
Let's say more than one member/director of a company attempts to take over chairmanship by illegally influencing, threatening etc. and the coup becomes known and thwarted. What will be they charged with by the police ?
In corporate setting you have 'usually' a vote in democratic manner, i.e. one person one vote for board vote. There are people who have preferential shares and have more weight, but for this argument those people are taken out, i.e. they are not there.
Now let's say a bad actor uses illegal means i.e. threatening, bribing and using whatever means to oust and be the chairman (an example) or put vote in whichever direction they want.
I do think there would be some laws as there is something called 'corporate ethics' . Would be very surprised if there aren't any laws to take care of situations like these if it can be proven that such things happened.
What would be the charges, for example in the U.S. for such situations ?
