Virtual CLE Program: M&A and Governance Litigation Developments in COVID-19-Churned Markets
1.00 Hr CLE Pending
The Forum and Winston & Strawn LLP invite you to join us for a Virtual CLE Program discussing how the COVID-19 pandemic has roiled the waters of M&A and governance litigation. A wave of “busted-deal” M&A litigation has broken, with buyers seeking to cancel transactions and sellers suing to compel them. Program speakers will explore: Evolving contractual MAE definitions; carve-outs, and their exceptions ; use of covenants and closing conditions as potential “escape hatches”; and the current state of play and what it foreshadows for the future of MAE litigation. Speakers will also examine key Delaware developments: minority blocking rights imposing controlling stockholder fiduciary duties; the shifting landscape of fiduciary oversight (“Caremark”) duties; Appraisal: the latest from Delaware; and other important developments for public companies and their boards.
