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.

Why you should attend
The M&A market has been in a period of great expectations, with economic anxiety continuing to create uncertainty about the future. Increased volumes of tender offers, hostile deals, activist campaigns, as well as spin-offs, has been an important trend, while the use of innovative structuring mechanisms, such as contingent value rights, has been another. The rise in M&A litigation has also brought with it a flurry of decisions and bench rulings - including those relating to preliminary agreements such as confidentiality agreements - that inform practitioners’ views on the latest “M&A deal technology.” 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.

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 pros and cons of earnouts and CVRs
  • The critical importance of pre-deal documents, such as confidentiality agreements (including recent case law on use restrictions and "don't ask, don't waive" standstills)
  • Special considerations when doing cross-border deals
  • Developments in Delaware law relating to M&A deals
  • The nuts and bolts of definitive agreements - representations and warranties, covenants, conditions and indemnification provisions
  • How to launch or defend against a hostile deal or an activist hedge fund
