Mergers & Acquisitions

We represent a diverse array of clients of all sizes and industries including Fortune 500 companies, investment funds, large corporate stockholders, individual officers and directors, lenders, and startups.

We counsel our clients to facilitate their business objectives in corporate deals, whether by enjoining transactions, ensuring they are consummated, or vindicating our clients’ rights when transactions fall apart or issues arise after a deal closes.  In addition to our varied courtroom and arbitration experience, we just as often advise clients on strategies to avoid litigation or otherwise negotiate successful results short of a lawsuit.  Our clients routinely consult us before or at the outset of a deal, either in anticipation of litigation or simply because they value our perspective, expertise, and experience.  We regularly work side-by-side with clients’ transactional teams to develop their deal strategies.

Our extensive experience litigating significant transaction-related disputes includes:

  • Leveraged buy-outs, restructurings, and large complex sale and merger transactions
  • Defending and blocking transactions through temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions
  • Enforcing financing agreements
  • Tender offer litigation
  • Representing special committees of outside directors
  • Shareholder class actions
  • Breach of representations and indemnification claims
  • Asserting and defending fiduciary-related claims on behalf of directors and controlling shareholders
  • Earn out obligation litigation
  • Fraudulent conveyance claims
  • Valuing assets such as patents and assessing liabilities such as lawsuits
