Why You Should Attend
The M&A market has experienced volatility, with macroeconomic factors – war inflation, interest rate increases, stock and financing market fluctuations and periods of financing volatility – compounding risks from global and political events, such as the pandemic and war in Ukraine, to slow down M&A activity. The market is also responding to increased regulatory scrutiny in the U.S. and globally. We have also seen a number of hostile deals, creative deal structures, shareholder activist campaigns – including the introduction of a universal proxy ballot and a focus on ESG issues -- and developments in Delaware M&A jurisprudence. 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.
