Yes, But . . . Asserting Affirmative Defenses in Merger Litigation
12 PM EST
Recent merger trials have focused on affirmative defenses such as failing firm, efficiencies, and entry. What is the state of the law and common threads between the cases? What are the strategic concerns with asserting these defenses? A panel of three experts, each with a unique perspective, will tackle these issues and more in this engaging panel. In addition to a discussion of the key case law, the panelists will call upon their practical experience to explore what it all means for the future of affirmative merger defenses.
