Special Committee and Corporate Counseling
Seitz Ross has represented special committees of independent directors in investigating and responding to pre-suit stockholder demands. We also have been counsel (both pre- and post-litigation) in leading Zapata special litigation committee cases. Due to the sensitive nature of this work, including engagements for Fortune 100 companies in the technology, financial services and insurance sectors, please contact us to learn more about our experience in this area.
Seitz Ross also draws upon its Delaware corporate law expertise and Court of Chancery litigation experience to either avoid litigation or best position clients in circumstances where litigation is likely. Seitz Ross has counseled corporations, directors, officers, and significant stockholders in connection with mergers and acquisitions, going-private transactions, contests for corporate control, interested director transactions, indemnification and advancement disputes, and corporate governance best practices, including director independence, board and committee composition, and disclosure.
