The legal requirements relating to tender offers have become a subject of great interest to a broad spectrum of corporate America. Given the frequency of litigation in this context, and the fact that the Williams Act itself and the SEC's rules provide clear answers to only the most basic of questions, analysis and understanding of the federal decisional law relating to tender offers - the principal focus of this Article - is of obvious significance. It constitutes an effort to analyze generally the principal issues raised in the many tender offer cases decided since the enactment of the Williams Act as well as a few earlier cases which may be of continuing relevance.
