Within: M&A litigation: defense

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is ‘a premier firm for M&A defense, highly respected and very professional’ and clients praise the litigators for ‘their vigor, their insight and their experience’. Stephen Lamb in Wilmington, who served as Vice Chancellor in the Delaware Court of Chancery, is one of the firm’s ‘truly exceptional lawyers’ along with New York partners Geoff Chepiga, Richard Rosen, Andrew Gordon and Daniel Toal. Chepiga and Toal successfully resolved several cases for Air Methods Corporation arising from its $2.5bn sale to affiliates of American Securities LLC, in which shareholders challenged the going-private transaction. Lamb and Gordon were part of a large team that acted for the defendants in one of the most closely watched M&A litigation suits of 2017, which concerned the $5.3bn acquisition of medical diagnostic company Alere by Abbott Laboratories. Abbott filed suit against Alere in an attempt to terminate the deal but the final settlement saw the transaction conclude for a slightly reduced price per share.
