Mergers & Acquisitions

Richards, Layton & Finger lawyers bring a long history of sophisticated judgment and excellent client service to mergers and acquisitions involving director and officer fiduciary responsibility under Delaware law.

We also counsel corporations that are concerned about the possibility of unsolicited takeovers, advising on directors’ duties and responsibilities, special board committees, charter and bylaw provisions, director indemnification, and stockholder rights plans. 

Our clients rely on our experience serving as Delaware counsel on virtually all types of business combination transactions involving public and privately held entities. Our lawyers have counseled on billions of dollars’ worth of mergers and acquisitions, management and leveraged buyouts, asset and stock sales, dispositions and restructurings. We also advise on the purchase and sale of distressed corporations and business assets.
