Filing Date: May 06, 2019
According to the Complaint, HFF is a provider of commercial real estate and capital markets services to both consumers and providers of capital in the commercial real estate industry and is one of the largest full-service commercial real estate financial intermediaries in the country. Some of the services the Company provides includes debt placement; investment advisory; distressed debt and real estate owned advisory services; equity placement; investment banking and advisory services; loan sales; and commercial loan servicing.
On March 19, 2019, HFF and Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (“JLL”) issued a joint press release announcing the Proposed Merger between HFF and JLL.
The Complaint alleges that on April 29, 2019, in order to convince HFF shareholders to vote in favor of the Proposed Merger, the Board authorized the filing of a materially incomplete and misleading Form S-4 Registration Statement (the “S-4”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.
This case was voluntarily dismissed on July 9, 2019.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
