THE CONFERENCE HAS SOLD OUT NO FURTHER REGISTRATIONS CAN BE ACCEPTED.

A conference presented by the IBA Closely Held and Growing Business Enterprises Committee and the IBA Corporate and M&A Law Committee.

Now that European corporate and finance activity is on track for a record year, we are proud to present the first in-person IBA Conference in this sector to be held in Europe after Covid-19 interupted our lives. This premiere conference will deal with all transactional lawyers need to know to better advise our corporate clients from their early stages, through growth and up to IPOs or other sophisticated exits. We will discuss the most remarkable trends in governance, funding, M&A, venture capital, private equity, IPOs and other relevant corporate and finance topics. 

The conference will cover the main phases of a successful growing enterprise, with leading practitioners and industry speakers who will share with us their 'war stories'. We will also be able to interact through thematic workshops, followed by excellent networking opportunities.

If you are a transactional lawyer, this conference will be a unique opportunity for both speakers and delegates to closely participate in discussions on and share successes in trends, challenges and theory.

Paris will also bring us the opportunity to organise our traditional social events where we can meet old and new friends in a relaxed and easy-going environment.
