Representative Matters :

  • On December 24, 2014 j2 Global, Inc. launched a hostile tender offer for the shares of Carbonite, Inc. Foley represented the board of directors of Carbonite in developing its defenses and responses to Carbonite, including the adoption of a two-tier shareholder rights plan. Foley was also selected by the company to handle anticipated litigation over the shareholder rights plan.
  • In the middle of the j2 negotiations we were notified by FINRA of an investigation into the trading of the shares of Carbonite immediately prior to j2’s tender offer; we produced documents to FINRA and otherwise responded to all FINRA investigatory requests. The company announced the resignation of one board member and the appointment of a new board member. On March 2, 2015, j2 Global withdrew its tender offer and its anticipated litigation.
  • Represented Fortune 100 global diversified technology company and directors in action alleging breach of fiduciary duty with respect to Proxy Statement disclosures relating to compensation plan and “say on pay” proposal slated for shareholder vote.
  • Responding to plaintiff’s threat to enjoin the company’s annual meeting, we opposed expedited discovery and moved to dismiss the complaint. When the judge determined to review our motion to dismiss before granting plaintiff any relief, plaintiff voluntarily dismissed the matter.
  • Our client, the Green Bay Packers, along with a grant from the NFL donated funds for the only NFL logo-ed football field outside an NFL facility to a local nonprofit, the Journey House.
  • Foley worked on negotiating a long-term license and management agreement with the county and a license with a private high school for use of the field.
