We have represented parties in a variety of actions in federal and state court (most notably, the Delaware Chancery Court) related to mergers and acquisitions.
Our matters have included takeover defense litigation, as well as litigation involving poison pills, auction processes, and go-shop and no-shop clauses. We also have defended clients in merger and acquisition litigation against claims of breach of fiduciary duty, breaches of representations and warranties, fraud, misrepresentation, and the like. In addition, our attorneys have substantial experience with litigation involving Material Adverse Change (MAC) provisions in merger agreements and demands for access to corporate books, records, and other internal documents.
Our litigators consult with colleagues in the corporate and securities practice group to counsel clients during the mergers and acquisitions process in order to minimize and/or avoid litigation risk.
