In re UnitedGlobalCom, Inc. Securities Litigation

less than a minute read


This case involved litigation in the Delaware Court of Chancery challenging the June 2005 merger of Liberty Media International, Inc. and its majority-owned subsidiary UnitedGlobalCom, Inc. (“UGC”). We were hired by Kevin Abrams of Abrams & Laster LLP to respond to plaintiffs’ claims that the exchange ratio was unfair to UGC’s minority shareholders. Daniel R. Fischel and Kevin Dages issued expert reports and provided deposition testimony which rebutted plaintiffs’ claims. The parties reached a settlement very favorable to our clients just prior to trial.
