Practices

Corporate Litigation and Counseling

Internal governance issues and the lawsuits that so often accompany them play a large role in our practice.  Especially in the context of corporate transactions, these issues demand deep knowledge of Delaware law and its exacting standards. We counsel directors, officers, and other fiduciaries on their responsibilities, and we defend them, when necessary, in litigation.

In high-stakes litigation, our clients and co-counsel rely on us to help them assess the factual, legal, and logistical complexities. We evaluate the structures and provisions of the deal — many of which have broken new ground in the field — in ways that both anticipate and avoid future litigation.  When lawsuits do in fact threaten the deal, we are adept at resolving them, often in expedited proceedings before the Delaware Court of Chancery.
