Boards of Directors and their counsel are increasingly being faced with
shareholder derivative demands and litigation asserting that the Board
failed to properly oversee corporate activities and prevent harm to the
corporation. Derivative demands and litigation present wholly unique and
complex corporate governance issues where process and procedure are as
important as the underlying substance of the issues raised by the
shareholder. Our panel has decades of experience advising Boards about
their alternatives in responding to demands and seeking to dismiss
shareholder litigation.
