Cornerstone Research staff have worked on dozens of matters arising from corporate transactions, including some of the largest and most groundbreaking cases brought to trial. We have analyzed economic, finance, and governance issues arising in mergers, acquisitions, asset sale and financing transactions, hostile takeovers, and other transactions. We have worked on these complex cases in federal and Delaware and other state courts. The types of issues that we have addressed include valuation of the enterprise, various securities, and direct and indirect benefits exchanged in corporate transactions; takeover defenses; corporate governance; breach of contract; and allegations of market manipulation and insider trading in conjunction with corporate transactions. We have experience in all phases of corporate transaction litigation, from preliminary injunctions to post-transaction litigation and trial.
Cornerstone Research has an extensive network of experts who apply their research and professional experience to address issues related to corporate transaction litigation. Our network of experts includes many preeminent professors of finance, economics, business, and law. Our industry experts include investment bankers, venture capitalists, and transaction advisors.
In addition to our transaction experience, Cornerstone Research also has broad experience with regulatory merger review. Please see Mergers and Acquisitions in our Antitrust and Competition practice.
