Conflicts and Conduct in Major Corporate Transactions and Litigation

November 10, 2016

A panel of seasoned M&A practitioners, including a former Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, will discuss potential conflicts that may arise in the representation of participants to a major corporate transaction and ensuing litigation. The panel will consider the limitations of advance waivers, as well as some of the professional obligations that both deal lawyers and litigators may encounter in such circumstances. Based upon a hypothetical sale of a public company, the program will highlight recent cases involving representational conflicts and professional conduct.
