Hi,

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is AJ and I am a company law expert. My colleague has asked me to assist you with this.

Did you have a shareholders agreement?
Did you have share certificates for the shares?
Did you sign a stock transfer form when the shares were sold?
How much should you have been paid?

Kind regards

AJ
