Converging Approaches of Delaware and Canadian Courts in M&A Litigation

November 02, 2017 13:00 - 14:00 EDT

The U.S. courts are deferring to the business judgment of directors in M&A transactions that have been properly approved by shareholders. This deference is making it more difficult for investors to advance post-closing damages claims. The net effect? Declining M&A litigation in the U.S., and alignment with the Canadian courts' approach to reviewing M&A transactions.

In this one-hour briefing, partners John Emanoilidis, Andrew Gray and Mile T. Kurta will address:

  • the recent Corwin decision and its aftermath;
  • the Canadian approach to deal reviews in M&A litigation; and
  • the impact on deal making and the importance of disclosure.
