The litigators work closely with the transactional corporate practice in the early stages of a proposed deal, as well as handling trials in Delaware and other fora across the US. The ‘simply stellarGary Bornstein, Robert Baron and and Kevin Orsini are the lead partners and clients note that ‘they come without ego, preconception or agenda‘. Rory Leraris also plays a central role in the practice. Along with Bornstein, he is currently representing Buckeye Partners in a putative class action arising from its $10.3bn merger with IFM Global Infrastructure Fund, in which plaintiffs allege that the company’s board authorized the filing of a materially incomplete and misleading preliminary proxy statement recommending Buckeye unitholders vote in favor of the proposed merger.
