Merger & Acquisition Actions
Pastor Law Office is well aware of how a merger or acquisition can positively or negatively impact a shareholder. The price or exchange rate may be unfair or inadequate and the shareholders may not be receiving fair consideration for their shares. The process by which the transaction is to be accomplished may be unfair to the shareholders for a number of reasons, including that it may not allow the target company to seek the best deal or the best price. And the management of the target company may seek a transaction that furthers their own interests over the interests of the shareholders. Also, management may fail to disclose or provide sufficient or adequate information to the shareholders in order to allow them a fully informed opportunity to evaluate the proposed transaction.
From a shareholder’s vantage point, it’s essential to understand the terms of a merger or acquisition and how you and others will be impacted. Pastor Law Office is here to help you through the process.
If you are a shareholder with concerns about the impact of an imminent merger or acquisition, or if you want more information, please inquire about a free evaluation so we can promptly review and discuss your case.
