Why you should attend

The M&A market has been experiencing a period of great expectations, with higher deal activity compared to recent troughs but with economic anxiety creating uncertainty about the future.  A resumption in activity in leveraged buyouts, as well as an increase in tender offers and hostile deals has been an important trend, while the use of innovative structuring mechanisms (such as contingent value rights) has been another. M&A participants continue to raise questions about what “the market” for deal terms is, whether buyers or sellers now have the upper hand, and whether any new paradigms in deal-making will emerge.  These questions, along with the new deal technology and case law emerging to address them, 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.

What you will learn

  • How to choose a transaction structure: Navigating the world of mergers and tender offers
  • Using innovative deal structures to get the deal done: the use and abuse of earnouts, CVRs and dual-track merger/tender offers
  • How to get the deal started with effective due diligence and confidentiality agreements
  • Whether or not to do term sheets and letters of intent
  • Developments in Delaware law relating to M&A deals
  • The nuts and bolts of definitive agreements - representations and warranties, covenants, conditions and indemnification provisions
  • Special considerations when doing cross-border deals
  • How to launch or defend against a hostile deal or an activist hedge fund

Who should attend

The program is geared to attorneys in private practice or in-house corporate counsel who seek a practical overview of key issues that arise in the most common types of corporate transactions. This is a full overview of all the skills you need to structure a transaction, draft preliminary and definitive agreements and perform the appropriate due diligence.
