The panel will provide an analysis of the unique issues that arise in the context of acquisitions of private companies, including duties owed to and by holders of common and preferred stock, allocation of merger proceeds, the effect of deemed liquidation and drag-along provisions, and director duties to maintain the confidentiality of information. Panelists will also discuss whether, or to what extent, fiduciary duties differ between acquisitions of private and public companies.
Patricia will be joined by Byron F. Egan from Jackson Walker L.L.P.
