Katten Partner Discusses Evaluation of Takeover Bids
Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, a full-service law firm represented on ESOP Marketplace through a number of its partners who specialize in matters of ESOP law, has demonstrated an effective wide spectrum approach in providing high-value legal advice for numerous industries.
Recently, Katten partner and co-chair of the Mergers and Acquisitions practice Jeffrey Patt gave an interview to Law360 where he discussed the challenges of evaluating competing takeover bids when they involve components that cannot be easily compared, such as a cash and stock mix. He offered advice to boards that are facing such difficult choices, recommending a patient approach and in-depth comparative studies.
The original interview is hosted on the Law360 website and requires a subscription to access.
