Fried Frank's M&A Litigation Practice is based in our New York and Washington, DC offices. Our litigators are experienced in disputed merger transactions and takeover contests.
Fried Frank litigators are experienced in disputed merger transactions and takeover contests. In contested situations, initiating or defending litigation is often critical to the outcome. Preemptive action may win the day. Effective advocacy often prevails. We have the litigation resources to accomplish our client's objectives.
Either separately or in conjunction with our Mergers and Acquisitions Practice, we are prepared to give sound litigation judgments and to move swiftly and effectively to protect our clients' interests in court. Our extensive experience in securities and shareholder litigation also strengthens our takeover litigation prowess. We also work closely with other Firm practices – antitrust, commercial litigation, environmental, government contracts, intellectual property and technology and white-collar crime.
We advise clients in situations involving unsolicited bids, and we represent them when these bids result in hostile takeover litigation. We have been involved in many of the seminal takeover cases of the past 20 years, including the Bendix-Martin Marietta Pac-Man case, the US Supreme Court Burlington Northern case and the Delaware Supreme Court Household, Revlon, Time-Warner and Paramount/QVC cases.
