NEW YORK, March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- WeissLaw LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Willis Towers Watson, Plc ("WLTW" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: WLTW) in connection with the proposed acquisition of the Company by Aon Plc ("AON") (NYSE: AON). Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, WLTW shareholders will receive 1.08 shares of AON for each share of WLTW they own, representing consideration of $193.24 based on AON's March 9 closing price.
If you own WLTW shares and wish to discuss this investigation or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, visit our website:

WeissLaw is investigating whether WLTW's Board of Directors acted to maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the acquisition agreement. Notably, at least one analyst set a target price of $250.00, or approximately $57.00 above the per-share consideration. Additionally, WLTW shares traded for $219.13 as recently as February 4.
Given these facts, WeissLaw is concerned whether the proposed acquisition agreement undervalues the Company, whether the Board ran a fair process, and whether all material information related to the proposed acquisition is fully and fairly disclosed.
WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties. We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases. If you have information or would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or anti-trust violations, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
