    M&A litigation has historically centered on pre-closing disclosure or post-closing breach of loyalty claims. Appraisal litigation has been growing in popularity among shareholders who seek to exercise their appraisal rights under Delaware law when disagreements involving pricing arise. Institutional investors, such as hedge funds and other large investors have announced their intention to, or sought to, exercise their appraisal rights in several recent high-profile mergers.

    Join an experienced securities and M&A litigator and a financial expert in valuation and complex transactions who will discuss:

    • An overview of appraisal litigation and relevant precedent

    • Increased scrutiny by the Delaware Chancery Court and others regarding the fair value of shares and how it may result in an inflow of litigated appraisal actions

    • Potential impact of Delaware statutory interest that accrues on appraisal awards from the date of the deal's closing until payment of judgment

    • Financial, valuation, and other issues that may arise out of appraisal actions

    • Recent noteworthy cases involving appraisal rights such as Dell, Dole Food Company, and 3M/Cogent
