Session seven: How to do an international M&A deal in less than 60 days


North American Regional Forum (Lead)


M&A has once again become a main focus for many companies seeking growth through acquisition as well as for funds seeking to put their capital to work. As companies and portfolio entities face tough competition and increasing demands to innovate, they are turning to strategies such as M&A and global expansion to improve solution suites and their market position. This session will focus on ways to streamline the legal aspects of the M&A process. This interactive discussion will include: • Strategic use of the letter of intent • Time planning for each stage of due diligence and negotiation • Building relationships at each level of management and decision-making • Managing stakeholders and advisors across jurisdictions • Identifying impediments and critical conditions to closing
