I have a small accounting practice in West Los Angeles. I

I have a small accounting practice in West Los Angeles. I need to increase my client base and basically there were couple of ungrateful tax clients in past about few years ago, that wanted me to provide them free service for them which I declined and I requested payment for the additional work. They have gone on Yelp and posted very untruthful facts about my services and gave a bad rating on my services that I provided them. I responded to their false accusation on the site and also requested my other clients to post a review about my services and asked them to express their view and opinion about my services. Few of them wrote up very good reviews about their experiences with my services. However, for some strange reason, all those reviews were taken down from yelp and now only these not favorite reviews are being seen by the potential clients. I called customer representative of Yelp and they said these other good reviews did not make reviews for others in yelp and thereby they have taken them down. In addition, I wanted to advertise with Yelp and they told me that since I have these couple of bad reviews which have given me 1 star, my advertisement with them would not be effective and they are not even willing to take me as a client. Is there any remedy for this situation.

I am a shareholder in a small business which turns over

I am a shareholder in a small business which turns over about £250,000 per year. One of the directors has agreed to sell his shares of 25% in the company for £10,000. This is a very low sum even taking into consideration that the company is not doing as well as it has in the past. He will be leaving the company as part of corporate restructuring and general agreement of all parties.The remaining majority shareholder will have just over 50% of the company once this restructuring has taken place and will be keen to buy out other shareholders while the value of the shares are low, in an effort to seek investment at a later stage with him owning a larger shareholding.My question is are the other shareholders legally obliged to sell at a value similar to the £10,000 at any point or can we hold onto our shares until there's investment and growth in the company some years down the line? As I understand it there are standard drag along and tag along rights.
