Legal 500 Recognizes Potter Anderson for M&A Litigation Defense and “Standout Attorneys”

June 1, 2017

The 2017 edition of Legal 500 United States recognized Potter Anderson among the top U.S. firms for M&A litigation defense. It noted the firm’s role as counsel in a case in the Delaware Supreme Court where the “decision set the legal standard for determining whether corporate directors breached fiduciary duty in evaluating and approving a merger.” The publication referred to partners Don Wolfe, Pete Walsh, Myron Steele, Mike Pittenger and Kevin Shannon as “standout attorneys.” A commenter also remarked that Shannon is “a first port of call” for national firms needing Delaware counsel.

The Legal 500 assesses the strengths of law firms in over 100 jurisdictions. Research is based on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers.
