Hot Topics in Mergers & Acquisitions 2017

Released on: Sep. 27, 2017
Running Time: 07:01:30

In 2016, M&A activity, whether measured by deal volume or the aggregate value of deals, sustained the robust pace set in 2015.  In the U.S., 2016 also saw a near-record number of broken deals, some blocked by a more active regulatory regime.  The impact of the U.S. election results and the UK Brexit is still unfolding. In this quickly evolving and uncertain environment, it is critical for dealmakers and their counsel to stay abreast of the latest trends and forecasts. What is driving the continued activity levels, and are those underlying factors sustainable? How will the Trump administration’s regulatory, fiscal and monetary policies affect the acquisition financing and equity markets?  How will these policies influence the strategies of activists and how should companies be preparing? Join our expert faculty of lawyers, general counsels, regulators and investment bankers as we explore the fascinating state of M&A and the trends you need to be aware of for the year ahead.

You will learn:

  • The latest in deal protection and relevant developments in Delaware law
  • Identify important tax issues
  • Hear about current trends in private M&A
  • Understand the new regulatory environment
  • How to successfully navigate ethical challenges in corporate transactions

This seminar is geared to attorneys in private practice, in-house counsel, and other business professionals who seek a practical overview of key issues that arise in the dealmaking process.
