Mullen Discusses Advance Waivers of Appraisal Rights

January 13, 2022

Partner Tom Mullen will be a panelist discussing the law and evolving practice regarding advance waivers of appraisal rights under Delaware law in light of the recent Delaware Supreme Court opinion in Manti Holdings v. Authentix.

Hosted by the ABA Business Law Section’s Private Equity and Venture Capital Committee, the panel will cover the impact of Manti on drag-along provisions and on stockholder agreements more generally, and the possible extension of the Manti holding to waivers of other stockholder rights under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

Mullen’s practice focuses on corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, and transactions involving Delaware business entities. He regularly advises corporations, directors, board committees and investors regarding fiduciary duties under Delaware law and all aspects of the DGCL and Delaware partnership and LLC statutes. He is frequently engaged as counsel for conflict committees of master limited partnerships in connection with drop downs, capital restructurings and M&A transactions. He also provides legal opinions concerning Delaware business entity statutes and corporate and commercial law issues.
