Co-author of BBNA Corporate Practice Portfolio Series No. 105, Deal Protection Devices.  This portfolio provides a discussion of deal-protection devices that largely govern the period between the signing of a merger agreement and the stockholder vote on the transaction. The discussion explores how deal-protection provisions operate together and how they are scrutinized when the parties adopt particularly aggressive or unprecedented variations of the protections. Additionally, the authors provide advice and guidance in the use of deal-protection measures.
