Taken from the briefing Converging Approaches of Delaware and Canadian Courts in M&A Litigation recorded November 2017 in New York.

The U.S. courts are deferring to the business judgment of directors in M&A transactions that have been properly approved by shareholders. This deference is making it more difficult for investors to advance post-closing damages claims. The net effect? Declining M&A litigation in the U.S., and alignment with the Canadian courts' approach to reviewing M&A transactions.
