Merger & Acquisition Litigation
Thursday, February 20 to Friday, February 21, 2014
Bally’s Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV
According to a Cornerstone Research study, shareholders challenged 93% of M&A deals valued over $100 million and 96% of transactions valued over $500 million – ensure you are mitigating your litigation risks and avoiding a potential nightmare.
With a growing number of mergers and acquisitions taking place, there is an increasing willingness to litigate issues – everything from a buyer not fulfi lling its obligations to the seller, to the Board’s breach of fiduciary duty toward shareholders. With this very uncertain and expensive litigation, ACI’s Summit on M&A Litigation will provide an in-depth look at how practitioners are meeting these challenges, discuss the favorability of different jurisdictions for each party, and give a comprehensive litigation toolkit that practitioners can immediately bring back to the office.
Now is the time to benchmark your strategies against the movers and shakers in the industry as this Summit brings together the best of the best from in-house counsel and the law firms that counsel them. Corporations continue to represent “deep pockets” for potential plaintiffs. The pursuit and defense of these suits requires meticulous planning, and often involve high cost. No other forum provides the opportunity to share defense strategies and tactics to enhance your litigation toolkit.
