|Protecting Your Rights as a Shareholder in Mergers and Acquisitions|
A shareholder that owns any amount (no matter how small) of any publicly traded company has the right to bring a lawsuit after an announced deal that may be unfair. Very often the shareholders are the "little guys" that want to bring transparency to the entire deal process. Ultimately, it is the SHAREHOLDERS (no matter how big or how small) that own a company, and a merger and acquisition lawsuit helps remind management of just that fact.
According to the Harvard Management Update, "Most [mergers] fail to add shareholder value-indeed, post-merger, two-thirds of the newly formed companies perform well below the industry average."

How merger and acquisition lawsuits protect shareholder rights
Merger and acquisition lawsuits seek to protect all shareholders' rights by giving everyone a seat at the table during the deal process. All too often, M&A deals are conducted in opaque backroom deals by a "good old boy" network of corporate chieftans that seem to forget about their duty to look out for the interests of the shareholders.
Merger and acquisition lawsuits help make sure that shareholders know exactly what is going on with THEIR company, and ensure that the M&A deal is fair and equitable to all of the shareholders.
