Corporate disputes may often be avoided or mitigated by seeking timely pre-litigation advice. Seitz Ross attorneys draw on their Court of Chancery litigation experience to counsel clients on their fiduciary obligations and other Delaware corporate law issues in order to either avoid litigation or to best position clients in circumstances where litigation is likely.
Seitz Ross attorneys have counseled corporations, directors, officers, and significant shareholders in connection with mergers and acquisitions, going-private transactions, contests for corporate control, interested director transactions, and indemnification and advancement disputes.
Our attorneys have also represented special committees of independent directors in investigating and responding to pre-suit shareholder demands. And we have been counsel (both pre- and post-litigation) in leading Zapata special litigation committee cases, including cases involving AIG and infoGROUP.
In addition, Seitz Ross attorneys have counseled boards of directors and companies on corporate governance best practices, including director independence, board and committee composition, and disclosure.
