Being Prepared for M&A Strike Suits: How Do You Avoid Disclosure Pitfalls in M&A Litigation?

Almost every public M&A deal draws instant litigation, oftentimes, multiple lawsuits in more than one jurisdiction. In M&A litigation, plaintiffs frequently seek an injunction, alleging that disclosures were inadequate or misleading in various ways. In resolving such claims, the courts frequently find that additional disclosures would not be material, but in some cases, notably those involving alleged conflicts of interest, financial projections, and the assumptions and analyses underlying financial advisors’ fairness opinions, they have required additional disclosures. Deborah S. Birnbach and Michael T. Jones, both partners in Goodwin Procter's Securities Litigation & White Collar Defense practice, will serve as presenters for this PLI webcast.
