Corporate Partner Elena Norman will be speaking on two panels at the 2018 Annual Conference of the ABA Section of International Law which begins today in NYC.
Her first panel, entitled “Busted Deals and How to Prevent Them," will take place tomorrow afternoon, April 18th from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM. "The focus of the panel is to provide attendees with an improved toolkit to prevent, manage and resolve deal killer issues in a way that maximizes deal survival. This panel will review the most common causes of deal failure falling within lawyers’ bailiwick, and discuss outcome-determinative practical and legal solutions to prevent, manage and attempt to resolve such issues."
Ms. Norman's second panel, “Recent Trends in Merger and Acquisition Law and Practice: The Interrelationship Between Stockholder Voting and Director Duties,” will occur on Thursday, April 19th from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Panelists will be discussing Corwin and how recent Delaware case law, such as In re Saba Software, has explored the limits of this rule. The panelists will also discuss how the balance between stockholder voting and director duties has been reached in other jurisdictions, both common law and civil law.
