Pillsbury partner Veronica Nunn and senior counsel Nate Cartmell recently participated in the 2022 American Bar Association’s Business Law Section’s spring meeting.

Cartmell moderated and Nunn was a panelist on a program entitled “Case Law Matters: Drafting and ‘Control’ Lessons that Every Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Lawyer Should Learn, But Not the Hard Way” which focused on recent case law regarding material adverse effect definitions, indemnification, fraud carve-outs and other miscellaneous provisions, as well as decisions that set forth guidance on determining control persons. Additionally, Pillsbury Corporate associate Jessica Dabiri assisted with the program materials.

In a second session, Cartmell moderated the American Bar Association’s M&A Jurisprudence Subcommittee Meeting and Nunn presented on the Delaware Court of Chancery’s March 2022 ruling in Level 4 Yoga, LLC v. CorePower Yoga, the most recent highly publicized COVID-19 “break-case.”

These discussions built on the team’s 2022 research on market trends related to COVID-19 provisions in M&A agreements that they presented to the ABA Business Law Section in April 2021.
