US Merger Cases – How to Avoid Paying Shareholder Plaintiffs a Toll (or at Least Reduce the Payment)

ACC Quick Counsel Presentation

19 May 2015 04:00 p.m. - 05:00 p.m.

Ninety percent of public company mergers draw at least one shareholder lawsuit, and increasing percentages of private transactions are being targeted. Partner Erik Olson will discuss why so many cases are being filed, how companies and their fiduciaries can protect themselves, and how they can eliminate or reduce the attorneys’ fees paid to shareholder plaintiffs’ law firms in connection with these cases.
