M&A shareholder litigation. There has been a significant explosion in recent years, as deal litigation has become ubiquitous over even small deals. During this webcast, you will not only learn of the causes of this maelstrom, you will learn how you can best cope with its consequences - to changes in deal structures to developments in how deals are negotiated.

Join these experts:

  • Ignacio Salceda, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, LLP
  • David Katz, Partner, Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz
  • Marcia Kramer Mayer, SVP and Chair, NERA's Securities and Finance Practice

Among other topics, this program will cover:

  • Trends in deal litigation: frequency, deals most likely to be litigated, venue and outcomes
  • What deal terms are most impacted by deal litigation today, and how can buyers and sellers take advantage
  • What changes in deal structures are being caused by deal litigation
  • What boards can do to protect themselves from potential liability in a lawsuit
  • What are the primary causes of deal litigation, including how the collapse of Milberg Weiss splintered the plaintiffs' bar and made it much more undisciplined in its approach to transactional litigation
