father-son battle for corporate ownership

Setting: a modern, mostly-realistic Earth, with superheroes. I don't think this should change the answer much.

Characters: father and son billionaire businessmen, who hate each other's guts.

Previous research: general reading on corporate ownership and inheritance law. I'm honestly not sure how to google this.

My basic question has to do with a father's trying to severely limit his son's role in running their family's billion-dollar corporation after his death.

But I know nothing about corporate law, and it's just a plot device anyway...Collapse )

Thank you so much for any advice you can give. This is an amazing community!
