Fairness Opinions: The New Best Practices

Duff & Phelps and McMillian LLP co-authored a chapter in Chartered Business Valuators (CBV) Institute’s 2018 Journal of Business Valuation, providing an analysis of pre-and post-InterOil practices (in Canada) as it relates to obtaining fixed-fee fairness opinions on public company acquisitions.

Brazilian Transaction Insights – Q3 2019

The statistical analysis of transactions covers the acquisition of Canadian public companies for an 18-month period, both prior to and following the InterOil decision. Additionally, the team also surveyed M&A deal lawyers at Canadian law firms to cover the legal community’s reaction to the InterOil decision and its impact on transactions since then, both within and outside British Columbia/Yukon.
