On Thursday, Feb. 24 from 1:00 p.m. EST to 2:30 p.m. EST, a webinar will be presented on key 2010 Delaware court decisions on mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, class actions, alternative entities and related issues. A more detailed description follows:


During 2010, Delaware’s Supreme Court and Court of Chancery issued hundreds of decisions addressing mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance and alternative entities. The rulings address the use of poison pills and top-up options, director terms, fiduciary duties and insolvent LLCs. The new Delaware rulings will shape the way corporate counsel approach M&A deals, corporate governance issues and alternative entity practice going forward.

The panel will provide legal and practical takeaways that corporate and deal counsel should immediately apply.

Following the speaker presentations, you’ll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A. More details are available here.
