Pastore & Dailey won a complex securities and M&A action in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware arising from a derivative rights holder agreement and related investment banking engagement agreements. This is the latest iteration in the saga between the Defendant, Pastore & Dailey’s client, and the Plaintiff, a representative of the shareholders to a company seeking to invalidate investment banking fees owed following a series of complex insurance corporate mergers.

After Pastore & Dailey successfully defended its client in the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska and then successfully defended its client in the appeal before the Eight Circuit that followed the District of Nebraska decision, its Motion to Dismiss was granted in the District of Delaware. In its Memorandum Opinion, the District Court agreed that Plaintiff’s claims were batted by the doctrine of res judicata and that the Plaintiff lacked standing to assert its claims.

Pastore & Dailey attorneys have vast experience arguing and defending matters in various federal courts across the country and are well-situated to handle similar claims involving complex contractual and investment banking issues.
