Why You Should Attend
The M&A market has seen a flurry of activity in 2018 with ups and downs, as macroeconomic trends and expectations continue to seesaw. In addition to the continued high volumes, the market has also seen a number of hostile deals, creative deal structures, shareholder activist campaigns, and developments in Delaware M&A jurisprudence, as well as deal technology. This year’s program will also include an in-house lawyers’ panel, which will give us insights into “views from the inside.” These trends and developments are among the points that will be discussed at the Doing Deals program.
A prominent faculty of top 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.
