AF&T works to protect shareholders and limited partners in relation to corporate transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, or other business combinations. As fiduciaries, directors of publicly traded companies owe their shareholders the duties of due care, loyalty and full and fair disclosures. Too often, however, directors fail to fulfill these duties, overlooking or disregarding the rights of the shareholders in favor of their own self-interests, giving rise to shareholder claims for damages. For example, shareholder claims against directors arise when publicly traded corporations are sold in a merger or acquisition at an inadequate price, robbing shareholders of their rightful ownership stake.
AF&T has prosecuted numerous class actions on behalf of investors who have been unfairly treated or inadequately compensated in a corporate transaction or business combination and has achieved substantial relief on behalf of those shareholders, including millions of dollars in increased consideration, the disclosure of material and important information necessary to make an informed decision about a proposed transaction, and other types of corporate governance reforms designed to protect and maximize shareholder value. AF&T’s superior results have been recognized by the Delaware Court of Chancery.
