An abstract of an article by Mr. Aquila and Ms. Lipton titled, “How to Handle (Or Deflect) Unsolicited Bids,” which originally appeared in Practical Law: The Journal, was featured in the August issue of the Bowne Review for Dealmakers. The article noted the increase in unsolicited bids in recent years and the changes in the corporate governance landscape that have limited the use of traditional takeover defenses. The authors also discussed how public companies and their boards can prepare for unsolicited bids.
