Kevin Miller is chair of the program and will deliver the opening remarks.
Chuck Cox will be speaking during the session “M&A Litigation Developments.” Panelists will discuss New York versus Delaware as a forum for stockholder litigation; broken deal litigation after Akorn; developments in appraisal, including its convergence with and divergence from fiduciary duty litigation; litigating over high-vote and low-vote stock; and managing the torrent of M&A litigation in federal courts.
Merger and acquisition activity has remained robust in 2018. The ability to properly advise companies and their boards of directors and to effectively negotiate an M&A transaction requires detailed knowledge of the latest trends and developments affecting M&A. This program will help you stay up to date on M&A activity and cutting-edge trends and developments regarding M&A litigation, appropriate board processes, the negotiation of key provisions in public company merger agreements, SEC disclosure matters, and tax and other issues with important M&A implications. Panels of top industry professionals, a justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, a member of the Delaware Court of Chancery, a justice of the New York County Supreme Court, Commercial Division, and a senior member of the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission will discuss these and other developments.
