Special Committees: Law and Practice (2nd edition)


Publication| Corporate Transactions| Corporate & Chancery Litigation| Special Committees & Investigations

Special committees of corporate boards of directors have been widely utilized since the 1980s to resolve conflict of interest transactions, to investigate potential corporate wrongdoing, and to assert the board’s control over pending derivative litigation. An extensive body of law has evolved relating to the use of special committees, and Special Committees: Law and Practice, written by knowledgeable practitioners in corporate law and special committee practice, is the first authoritative reference on this developing area of law.

Originally published in 2011 and expanded in 2014, this comprehensive book provides in-depth explanations on the uses, benefits and disadvantages of special committees. It is designed as a practical users’ manual for corporate lawyers and general counsel, giving practitioners a unique and thorough working knowledge of special committee law, how to best utilize special committees, and the role of special committee members.
