Texas Gulf Sulphur at 55: Insider Trading

Program Description

Professor Ford will talk about the case and its impact, or lack thereof, on insider trading over the past 55 years.  Professor Ford represented the former CEO of Texas Gulf Sulphur and the top 25 executive officers in an action against Societe National Elf Aquitaine  (Elf Aquitaine).  The action was based on a breach of the takeover agreement between Texas Gulf and Elf Aquitaine.  She won that case (with the assistance of Quinnipiac Law Students).  Elf Aquitaine was subsequently taken over by Totalfina and renamed TotalSA.
