Shareholders say they are entitled to a bigger piece of a shipping company than they are being offered as one of the world’s largest tanker operators works its way through bankruptcy.

Two groups of investors filed protests with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del., saying the company is advancing a “flawed” restructuring strategy and ignoring shareholder-backed proposals.

The group of investors is being represented by a team of attorneys from various bankruptcy law firms, including Jeffrey M. Schlerf of Fox Rothschild.
