Dan Cohen Talks Acquisition Fallout with Houston Business Journal

08.03.12

The Houston Business Journal connected with Daniel L. Cohen, chair of the Firm's Corporate Practice Group in Houston, for an article about Houston-area marketing companies battling over acquisition fallout. Pop Labs Inc. allegedly bought Bright Box Inc. in November 2012. Bright Box filed suit for breach of contract, arguing that Pop Labs did not supply payment for the acquisition and alleges the agreement is now void. Soon after, Pop Labs filed a countersuit against Bright Box.

"I think the more activity you see, the more likely you are to see disputes," says Mr. Cohen. "This is also affected by industry conditions going on at the time... You tend to see more disputes when the economy takes a turn or changes."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
