The M&A market has continued its busy pace, while macroeconomic trends and political considerations continue to create uncertainty.  In addition to a robust volume of M&A deals, the market has also seen a number of hostile deals, creative deal structures, shareholder activist campaigns, and developments in Delaware M&A jurisprudence, including the first ever judicial finding of a “MAE.”  This year’s program will again include an in-house lawyers’ panel, which will give us insights into how these trends are “viewed from the inside.”  These developments are among the points that will be discussed at the Doing Deals program.

A prominent faculty of top outside and in-house lawyers and investment bankers will share their years of experience and teach you how best to represent your clients by creatively structuring, coordinating and managing M&A transactions.
