What's the Deal with Deal Litigation?
Shareholder Merger Litigation Against Public Companies

Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC)

06 Oct 2011 01:00 p.m. - 02:00 p.m.

Merger litigation is on the rise. These days, almost every public company deal announcement generates litigation, and shareholder merger litigation is a very present reality for any public company that is announcing a merger or acquisition. Given recent trends, no one should assume that deal litigation will settle for a nuisance value, for insignificant changes in a company’s disclosures or that it will just go away without much effort or attention. All directors, senior executives and in-house counsel can benefit from the expertise of the panelists below who deal with the legal and business challenges posed by merger litigation every day.

Participants Will Learn:

  • Overview of Key Merger Litigation Developments
  • How to Minimize Risk to Your Deal
  • Understanding and Addressing Conflicts of Interest
  • Understanding the Impact of Revlon on Deal Litigation
  • Key Steps to Prepare for Merger Litigation


Morrison & Foerster, at the request of the Association of Corporate Counsel, has authored a White Paper (InfoPAK) to assist corporate counsel preparing for deal litigation.
