M&A in the Age of Trump: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly [01:01:56]

President Trump ran on a pro-business platform.  A year into his presidency, it seems fitting to ask what impact the eponymous author of “Trump: The Art of the Deal” is having on M&A deal activity.  

Join leading M&A practitioners and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP partners Francis J. Aquila and Melissa Sawyer as they discuss M&A activity under the Trump Administration.  This hour-long presentation will feature a retrospective on the past 12 months, and offer a prospective look at how deal activity is likely to be affected in 2018 and beyond.  Topics will include:  

  • What tax reform means for M&A activity
  • How cross-border deals are being affected by the Administration’s “America First” agenda
  • How the President’s Twitter commentary about M&A deals has impacted deal-making
  • The Administration’s unexpected antitrust posture and its implications
  • How the “Trump Bump” impacted M&A levels in 2017 and whether we should expect more of the same in 2018
