As special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) IPOs and mergers continue to exceed market expectations, investors, executives, and financial institutions are becoming increasingly wary of an anticipated onslaught of litigation posed by these transactions and their unique potential risks and challenges. SPAC structures and their inherent volatility open them up to a host of potential claims. For investors and potential target companies, there are two critical questions: what are those claims and will they actually affect the bottom line?
Please join Mintz Members Adam Sisitsky, Nancy Adams, Jack Sylvia and Of Counsel, Kristen White for a lunchtime webinar as we explore the rising risk of litigation and regulatory enforcement facing SPACs and the individuals that lead them. Topics will include:
- The current SPAC litigation landscape
- SPAC M&A–related litigation, including disclosure issues and breach of fiduciary duty in the de-SPAC process
- D&O coverage challenges and risk mitigation
- Heightened SEC scrutiny
