Appraisal Litigation

Appraisal rights, sometimes referred to as “dissenter’s rights” gives an investor the right to demand that a court determine the value of his or her stock upon consummation of a merger, acquisition, or other transaction.  In recent years, with the emergence of “appraisal arbitrage” practices, appraisal rights have been asserted with increased frequency.
