Mergers, Acquisitions & DivestituresPDF
No firm is as uniquely positioned to understand Delaware law on mergers and acquisitions as we are. From our seminal work revising the laws that govern mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, to our corporate and litigation teams collaborating to litigate the leading cases interpreting key transaction provisions, and our expertise on the fiduciary duties of directors and officers in considering such transactions, we have a deep understanding of the complexity and nuances that govern these transactions.
Our advice extends to public and private companies, negotiated and hostile transactions, and transactions involving corporations and alternative entities. Our representations include those of the company itself, acquirors, and Boards of Directors and Special Committees. If a transaction is challenged in the courts, we provide strategy and counsel infused with unrivaled insight on how the courts may interpret the terms and language of the deal.
