Prevention of Lawsuits in Sale of Company

Invited by the lead independent director, with whom had worked on a previous sale of a public company, to represent the independent directors of a different company. Once involved, found inadvertent process and disclosure issues that, if uncorrected, could have made the sale subject to significant challenge. Working with the company’s inside and outside counsel, the team resolved all issues and eliminated any opportunity for a successful challenge—a clear win for management, the directors and the buyer.
