Over the past year, the legal landscape for books-and-records demands under Section 220 of the Delaware General Corporation Law has continued to evolve. Delaware courts are addressing inspection demands with regularity, providing further guidance about the scope of "books and records" and about what is (and is not) a proper purpose for a demand.
Please join Marjorie P. Duffy (a former Court of Chancery clerk) of Jones Day to learn more about these developments in books-and-records demands and litigation. Drawing on recent examples, including the AmerisourceBergen decision, she will:
- Consider Section 220 demands in connection with M&A;
- Discuss books and records sought following disclosure of regulatory issues or negative corporate news; and
- Offer insights as to what these latest cases may mean for future Section 220 demands.
