Mergers and Acquisitions Litigation
When a public or a private company merge, a few issues can emerge. We have represented plaintiffs and defendants in issues that arise from successful or failed mergers. For example, often after a merger, shareholders may have claims for breach of duty of care and breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing. These two duties—the duty of care and the duty of loyalty—often encompass other duties like the duty to disclose, sometimes referred to as the duty of candor; the duty of oversite, which is directed at boards of directors; and the duty of good faith. We have successfully helped clients navigate all these issues before litigation or during litigation. We have developed expertise in claims alleging that the board agreed to sell the company for an inadequate price.
