We regularly advise boards of directors, special committees and executive management of publicly held companies involved in corporate governance investigations and litigation. Our team provides insight and practical judgment on the many unique governance liability issues and risk factors, providing guidance on fiduciary duties, corporate governance best practices, and the legal and business implications of various litigation defense strategies. In activist situations, we often work -- either on behalf of incumbent directors or the activist hedge fund – hand-in-hand with our market-leading transactional activist/activist defense practice to provide unparalleled litigation and corporate advice in these charged situations.
More broadly, we offer comprehensive representation in areas such as:
Our litigators counsel clients across the full range of core issues—from activist campaigns and proxy challenges to stockholder rights plans and other takeover defense programs—developing strategies based on traditional corporate fiduciary standards and informed by the ever-changing body of legislation, regulation and listing standards that shape the responsibilities of directors and officers of public companies.
Cadwalader lawyers also are at the forefront of developments and best practices in this area. Global Litigation Group members lecture at the University of Pennsylvania Law School; serve on the Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Program Advisory Board; regularly publish articles in leading legal and business publications; and are quoted by mainstream, legal and business media regarding developments in the corporate governance field.
