As fiduciaries, directors of publicly traded companies owe their shareholders due care, loyalty, and full and fair disclosures. Too often, however, directors fail to fulfill these duties, overlooking or disregarding the rights of shareholders.
AF&T works to protect shareholders and limited partners in relation to corporate transactions such as mergers and acquisitions and other business combinations. Our attorneys have prosecuted many class actions on behalf of investors who have been unfairly treated or inadequately compensated in a corporate transaction, and we have achieved substantial relief, including millions of dollars in increased compensation and corporate governance reforms designed to protect and maximize shareholder value.
If you believe that you are being unfairly treated or undercompensated in a corporate transaction, or if you would like more information about the laws that protect shareholders, please contact us
