Shareholder Derivative Actions

Jones Day has acted as counsel for companies and individuals facing derivative actions arising from mergers, acquisitions, and other extraordinary corporate transactions, as well as in derivative cases brought in conjunction with securities fraud class actions.

Our lawyers have extensive experience with the fiduciary duty concepts that underlie these actions, and we often counsel boards of directors and individual directors and officers on these issues, as well as the interplay between corporate indemnification and directors' and officers' liability insurance. In particular, Jones Day lawyers understand the importance of managing a coordinated and strategically focused approach to the defense of shareholder derivative actions, as well as securities fraud cases and government investigations that might also be threatening the company and individuals.
