Merger & Acquisition Litigation

In this type of litigation, shareholders can assert legal claims against the officers and directors of a corporation if the corporate fiduciaries violated their fiduciary duties in connection with a corporate transaction, including a sale of the corporation.  The goals of this type of litigation can be to increase the consideration received by shareholders, to compel the disclosure of important facts to assist investors in deciding whether to approve a proposed corporate transaction, and to improve the proposed transaction’s terms to ensure fairness and eliminate coercion.
