In the wake of the Delaware Court of Chancery's decisions in Jana Master Fund v. CNET Networks and Levitt Corp. v. Office Depot, many companies are revisiting their advance notice bylaws and grappling with a number of open issues. Join these experts:

  • John Grossbauer, Partner, Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP
  • Jim Moloney, Partner, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP
  • Cliff Neimeth, Partner, Greenberg Traurig LLP

This program will cover:

  • After the Delaware Chancery Court decisions, what is a reasonable deadline to include in advance notice bylaws?
  • How should advance notice bylaws deal with hedging, short positions and similar situations?
  • What are the issues to consider when the terms of an advance notice bylaw diverge from the SEC's Rule 14a-8 shareholder proposal process?
  • Whether advance notice bylaws should explicitly address both director nominations and other business?
  • Whether to adopt an advance notice bylaw for special meetings?
