Welcome to the first-ever Business Law Section Annual Meeting in Chicago. The current edition of Deal Points, which was recently e-mailed to most but not neccesarily all (due to a server overload), Committee Members, and which can also be accessed by CLICKING HERE, contains the schedule for meetings of subcommittees and task forces as well as other information for participants. In addition to reports from our various task forces and subcommittees and the Chicago meeting schedule and dial-ins, this issue contains articles on Communications Challenges in the Valeant/Pershing Square bid for Allergan and a commentary on disparate treatment of bidders after the Chen v. Howard-Anderson case. Note especially the new format for Deal Points that has been developed by Eric Klinger-Wilensky and his team of editors.
