Our diverse panel of experts will debate and discuss the cybersecurity threat landscape, trends in regulatory enforcement and director liability litigation, and cyber risk governance best practices.

    Classroom Healthy Skepticism: The Board's Role in M&A


    The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) asserts that an excellent board questions management's assumptions, guides managers' thinking and ensures they do not have a conflict of interest when providing oversight in mergers and acquisitions. It also ensures that the proposed transactions--buying or selling--fit the company's strategy. Our expert panel will share insights from the Board, CEO, and Advisory perspective and lessons learned from being involved in multiple transactions. Lead attorneys will discuss significant transaction litigation cases, including the 2015 Supreme Court of Delaware $75-million ruling against RBC Capital Markets in which the firm was held liable to a class of Rural/Metro Corp. shareholders.
