M&A Perspectives – The Failure of Private Equity

This post is from Andrea Unterberger of the Corporation Service Company.

We call your attention to a special M&A event, “M&A Perspectives – The Failure of Private Equity,” which will be accessible at no cost by web seminar on October 30, 2008 in Wilmington, DE, from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

With the Lyondell Chemical case on appeal, and with the Huntsman/Hexion merger still generating litigation activity, M&A lawyers are looking forward to the presentation next Thursday afternoon by Professor Steven M. Davidoff (Click here for more information and to register). His principal topic (The Failure of Private Equity), on which he writes in a forthcoming article, is expected to focus on highlights from Delaware court decisions and proceedings in the past, tumultuous year, particularly as they reflect ambiguous contracting that has often proven ineffective to address the now-evident potential for market reversals. Additionally, Vice Chancellor Leo E. Strine, Jr. will join Professor Davidoff as commentator.

Writing as The Deal Professor, Davidoff is a commentator for the New York Times DealBook on the legal aspects of mergers, private equity and corporate governance. A former corporate attorney at Shearman & Sterling, he is a professor at the University of Connecticut School of Law. His columns are available at The Deal Professor blog.

This event is sponsored by the Widener University School of Law, Corporation Service Company, and The Delaware Counsel Group, LLP.

    Great, I look forward to attending online, especially to hear Professor Davidoff speak. Should be pretty interesting to get a better legal perspective.

    Thanks for the heads up,
