Make International M&A Great Again


Sponsored by Blakes

Being prepared for the dynamics of a cross-border M&A deal can prove tricky even for the most seasoned in-house counsel. Then comes the international execution of the transaction and post-close integration. In a business environment that is volatile and increasingly global, what do today’s in-house lawyers need to know if your company is looking to make an international acquisition or could potentially be viewed as a target for a foreign acquirer?

In-house and external counsel will provide practical examples and open a dialogue on how companies can prepare for a cross-border M&A deal before it hatches. Through an interactive Q&A, the audience will be guided through the importance of understanding corporate, legal and social cultural dynamics and how to integrate internationally after the deal has closed. The discussion will also include communication strategies and how to run a confidential transaction process in a world that loves rumors through social media.
