BLB&G partner Mark Lebovitch participated as a featured speaker in the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law's "Irreconcilable Differences: Director, Manager, Shareholder conflicts in Takeover Transactions," which was held Monday, April 11, 2011 in Wilmington, Delaware. The symposium brought together academics, judges, and practitioners to discuss the current Delaware case-law on these issues, appropriate standards to regulate these conflicts, and related research.
Mr. Lebovitch is primarily responsible for the firm's corporate governance litigation practice, focusing on derivative suits and transactional litigation. He has served as lead counsel in many of the most significant corporate governance actions of the past five years, and is currently serving as a co-lead counsel prosecuting challenges to a management buyout of J. Crew, a private equity buyout of Novell, and derivative suits alleging bad faith conduct by the boards of Johnson & Johnson, BP, plc, and Massey Corporation.
