Corporate Transactional / Derivative Litigation



The Corporate Transactional and Derivative Litigation practice group at Wolf Popper LLP has represented thousands of investors in cases related to corporate transactions and governance issues.



Investors are sometimes offered inadequate compensation for their stock during a company merger or acquisition. Directors and managers can breach their fiduciary duties to shareholders, engage in interested transactions, or can have other conflicts of interest that prevent them from maximizing shareholder value or providing a fair process or fair compensation.

Wolf Popper routinely represents institutional and individual investors in class action and derivative litigations that arise out of these circumstances and seek to recover the maximum compensation to which damaged investors are entitled.

The attorneys at Wolf Popper also advise individual investors and private and public companies regarding a wide range of issues, including:

  • Corporate governance matters
  • Modifying Boards of Directors
  • Golden parachute payments
  • Forming and structuring business entities
  • Shareholder agreements and stock redemptions
  • Compensation arrangements
  • Advising directors and officers on fiduciary responsibilities
  • Mergers and acquisitions and tender offers
  • Compliance with state and federal securities law

If you feel that a merger, tender offer, or other buy-out transaction is unfair, report it to Wolf Popper LLP.
