Doing Deals 2024: Art of M&A Transactional Practice

Time: 9:00 AM EST

Freshfields Partner Jenny Hochenberg will be speaking on the panel “It’s a Hostile World: Takeover Defense and Hostile Deals” at PLI’s Doing Deals 2024: Art of M&A Transactional Practice.

Share this event with your colleagues and connections on social media.

When times get tough, the tough – and hostile – get going. 

After completing this session, participants will be able to:

  • List strategies for bidder approaches and target responses
  • Implement shark repellants: Effective charter and bylaw provisions
  • Remember lessons learned from case studies on hostile bids

The M&A market has experienced volatility, with macroeconomic factors – war, inflation, interest rate increases, stock and financing market fluctuations and periods of stock market volatility – compounding risks from global and political events, such as the pandemic and war in the Middle East and Ukraine, to create uncertainty in 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 first season of universal proxy ballot -- 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.
