Potter Anderson Team Named “Legal Lions” by Law360 for Fresenius Win in Delaware Chancery Court

Firm News

In Law360’s “Weekly Verdict: Legal Lions & Lambs,” the Potter Anderson team members for pharmaceutical company Fresenius Kabi AG were named Legal Lions.

Serving as Delaware counsel to Paul Weiss Rifkind & Garrison LLP, we represented Fresenius in its effort to terminate its merger agreement with Akorn Inc. The Delaware Court of Chancery made an unprecedented finding that a merger target, Akorn, had experienced a material adverse effect within the meaning of its merger agreement with Fresenius and further held that Akorn’s breaches of a regulatory representation and ordinary course covenant permitted Fresenius to terminate the $4.8 billion merger agreement.

The Potter Anderson lawyers hailed by Law360 were partners Don Wolfe, Mike Pittenger, Brad Davey and Matthew Davis and associate Jake Kirkham.
