Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization is leading to a reexamination of the crime-fraud exception, an important exception to the attorney-client privilege. Member and Chair of Mintz’s ESG practice group, Jennifer B. Rubin and Associate Greer Clem co-authored an article published by Corporate Counsel in which they discuss the long-standing exception.
Mintz is strengthening its two decades-long reputation for being at the forefront of SPAC transactions serving as Biolog-id's legal advisor in its agreement to become a publicly traded company via a business combination with Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp.
In a significant August 2022 ruling, the California Court of Appeal narrowed the reach of Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Unruh Civil Rights Act (Unruh) as they apply to online-only businesses. The Appeals Court held in Martinez v. Cot’n Wash Inc. that the websites of online-only businesses are not places of public accommodation within the meaning of the ADA or with regard to Unruh. This decision is a welcome relief for small and medium-sized businesses throughout the country that have been frequent targets of demand letters and lawsuits from California plaintiffs.
In our fourth session, “ESG in the Boardroom,” the team is joined by Kristyn Noeth, Of Counsel at Mintz, to discuss best practices related to and practical implementation of ESG concepts, as well as the impending Climate Disclosure Rule. As noted in the introduction, fewer topics are generating more interest in boardrooms across the country (and at Mintz!) than environmental, social, and corporate governance.
Mintz completed a deal as counsel to Med-Pharmex in its sale to British-owned veterinary products developer and manufacturer Dechra Pharmaceuticals. Through the sale, Dechra will gain further access and nearly 40 years of experience in the U.S. veterinary health market.
