Corporate Governance & Shareholder Rights

Cases in Point

  • In re Walgreen Co. Derivative Litigation
    On behalf of West Palm Beach Police Pension Fund and the Police Retirement System of St. Louis, we negotiated extended terms of Walgreens' DEA commitments and additional requirements to ensure that the company would (1) fulfill its obligations as a DEA registrant and (2) implement appropriate reporting provisions so that the Walgreens' board of directors could effectively monitor the company's compliance with the law.

  • In re Waste Management, Inc. Securities Litigation
    On behalf of the Connecticut Retirement Plans and Trust Funds, we earned critical corporate governance improvements resulting in a stronger and more independent audit committee, a board with greater accountability, and a greater protection for whistleblowers.
