Corporate Transactional / Derivative Litigation



The Corporate Transactional and Derivative Litigation practice group at Wolf Popper LLP has represented thousands of investors related to corporate transactions or governance. Our attorneys strive to set a benchmark for representation in these areas.



Investors are sometimes offered inadequate compensation for their stock during a company merger or acquisition. Directors and managers frequently have conflicts of interest, which prevent them from maximizing shareholder value or providing a fair process or fair compensation.
