PLI's Mergers & Acquisitions 2022: Advanced Trends and Developments

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

M&A activity in 2021 has been robust, with an explosion in SPACs and a number of significant legal and regulatory developments.

The ability to properly advise companies, their boards of directors and special committees and to effectively negotiate M&A transactions requires detailed knowledge of the latest trends and developments affecting M&A. This program will help you stay up-to-date on M&A activity and cutting-edge trends and developments regarding the impact of Covid-19, particularly MAC clauses and interim operating covenants, M&A litigation, difficult negotiation and contractual issues, including financing conditions in leveraged buyouts, shareholder activism, SEC disclosure matters, antitrust enforcement and tax and other issues with important M&A implications. Panels that include some of the most experienced and sophisticated legal and investment banking professionals, the Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, three members of the Delaware Court of Chancery and the Chief of the Office of Mergers & Acquisitions at the Securities and Exchange Commission will discuss these and other developments.
