Key takeaways:
  • The Debevoise & Plimpton Special Committee Report is intended to assist controlled companies, corporate boards, financial advisors and other transaction participants to better understand how and when special committees are used and how to ensure that they function as intended.
  • On a periodic basis, we will catalog recent transactions involving special committees and summarize recent judicial decisions concerning special committees. We expect to identify trends involving the use of special committees and comment on issues relevant to the use (and misuse) of special committees.
  • This inaugural issue covers the special committee activity for the entirety of 2020, while future editions of this Report will cover the prior period.
