Willamette examines rise of appraisal litigation

BVWireIssue #157-3
October 21, 2015

More shareholders than ever don’t believe they’re getting a fair shake in a merger transaction and are petitioning the court to appraise the fair value of their shares. This trend does not seem to show any signs of slowing down, according to the latest issue of Willamette Insights (complimentary access). The issue is devoted to dissenting shareholder appraisal rights and oppression litigation and includes related articles on entity-level versus ownership-level valuation adjustments, rescissory damages in Delaware, defining “value” in ownership agreements, fair value of banks, how to avoid intrafamily transaction shareholder litigation, healthcare entity transfers, and more.
