Mergers and Acquisitions Litigation

Fair Deals for Shareholders
PDF

Mergers and acquisitions can offer great opportunities for shareholders to increase value. But they also present temptation for self-dealing and dishonesty by directors and officers, often at shareholder expense. We give shareholders the next best thing to a seat at the negotiating table— strong, effective representation in cases alleging unfairness in a transaction’s price or process. 

The Benefit of the Bargain

We focus on finding the best way to make our clients whole, whether through cash awards or non-monetary deal terms that increase shareholder value. While some remedies are immediate—such as an injunction against a pending merger or a change in its terms—others may take years to achieve. Our lawyers are committed to doing whatever is necessary to achieve the right resolution in every case, whether the deal is ongoing or long since closed.

Trial Experience Brings Results

Unlike many of our competitors, Kessler Topaz has proven experience bringing massive transactional cases to trial —and winning, as we did in In re Southern Peru Copper ($2 billion recovery after trial and appeal). In matters both large and small, our aggressive approach and trial-readiness have helped our clients recover billions of dollars of increased merger consideration through pre-trial settlements.
