Program
Sellers Beware:  Attorney-Client Privilege and Conflicts Risk in M&A Transactions

David Atkins, a member of Pullman & Comley LLC, and John H. Lawrence, Jr., a partner at Shipman & Goodwin LLP, will present an interactive program discussing conflicts of interest and the attorney client privilege in M&A transactions in the aftermath of the decision in Great Hill Equity Partners IV, LP v. SIG Growth Equity Fund I, LLLP, 80 A.3d 155 (Del. Ch. 2013).  The Great Hill case demonstrates how privileged communications made prior to closing may wind up in the hands of an adverse party with disastrous effects.   David and John will discuss the Great Hill case and the earlier case of Tekni-Plex, Inc. v Meyner and Landis, 674 N.E.2d 663 (1996), and their implications for M&A transactions, particularly their impact on engagement letters and purchase agreement provisions.
