Cleary Gottlieb partner Jim Langston participated in Stafford’s “Special Committees in M&A Transactions: Formation, Member Composition, Negotiating, and Approval Authority.”
The webinar examined the use of special committees in M&A transactions where directors or significant shareholders have a conflict of interest. The panel discussed the formation of a special committee, the committee’s role in evaluating and negotiating a proposed transaction, how the committee should interact with the board and third parties, and application of business judgement rule vs. the fairness standard on judicial review.
