Recent Trends in Shareholder Litigation

It comes as no surprise that business and market disruptions caused by the pandemic, and the reactions thereto, have set off a wave of shareholder lawsuits. This Coffee Chat will discuss two recent trends in shareholder litigation that directors, financial advisors and other fiduciaries should consider in the current market environment.

Topics include:

  • The increased use of poison pills to combat shareholder activism
  • Wolf pack provisions in stockholder rights plans
  • The Williams Pill
  • The surge of SPAC litigation and how to mitigate risk
  • The debate over whether SPACs are investment companies


Upcoming program in this series (you must register separately for each):

• November 3 – Strategies for Responding to Nasdaq’s Board Diversity Rule
