View Debevoise In Depth
On March 30, 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission proposed new rules relating to transactions involving special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs.
The rules, if adopted, may have far-reaching consequences for investment banks involved in SPAC transactions, including the potential imposition on some banks of underwriter liability with respect to the de-SPAC transaction registration statement.
Investment banks should consider what modifications to their protocols and practices they might make to protect themselves in the evolving SPAC environment.
