Fairness opinions and special committees

Our attorneys provide counsel to boards of directors to manage increasing calls for accountability in business transactions. Accordingly, we help our clients to take advantage of protections that mitigate the potential liability of different business transactions. Our attorneys advise clients with respect to the use of fairness opinions, and we review the scope and adequacy of fairness opinions provided by financial advisors. In light of increased scrutiny of corporate governance matters, we also advise our clients as to the use of special committees to avoid potential conflicts of interest or other possible violations of fiduciary obligations when business transactions are contemplated.
