Same same, but different – ‘universal’ legal concepts in cross-border transactions
Thursday 2 February (1630 - 1730)
Corporate and M&A Law Committee
European Regional Forum
When we are negotiating an issue, are we sure that we are talking about the same thing? Is assuming that a certain concept means the same on another continent, or just in another jurisdiction, a sensible approach in the context of cross-border transactions? The panel will identify a number of legal concepts that regularly play a role in M&A deals and discuss their content from a US, UK and continental European point of view.
