The party or parties against which your lawsuit will continue will depend upon the nature of the merger or other acquisition transaction concerning the company against which you brought suit. If the company was merged into another entity, then the successor entity will be liable for the actions of the initial company. If, however, it was an asset acquisition in which the acquiror did not assume the liabilities, the initial company will remain in existence and your suit will continue against it. If you do not already have a Litigation Attorney, you should explore this issue with an experienced Business or Litigation Attorney.
