Benjamin Z. Grossberg

Ben practices corporate, alternative entity, and complex commercial litigation in the Delaware Court of Chancery, with a focus on complex contractual disputes, mergers & acquisitions, fiduciary duties, corporate governance, and contests for control.

Ben has been deeply involved in many of the highest profile M&A and corporate governance disputes of the last decade including the Anthem-Cigna merger litigation, the CBS-National Amusements control dispute, the attempted Pershing Square/Valeant hostile takeover of Allergan, and the proposed reclassification of Facebook’s stock.  His complex commercial litigation work includes litigating debt/indenture agreements, acquisition agreements, and investment fund contractual disputes, as well as commercial agreements.

Ben also provides advice to corporations, their boards of directors, and board committees regarding the Delaware law implications of pending transactions, internal investigations, stockholder litigation demands, and the governance of insolvent and near-insolvent entities.
