Corporate and M&A Law Committee (Lead)


Carve-out transactions and sunset asset divestitures have become regular occurrences in the current M&A climate.  For some they are messy and desperate, and give Buyer significant leverage to profit; but in other cases clever sellers will be able to turn the tables. This panel will discuss the particularities of these transactions as compared to traditional M&A as well as common pitfalls and points for attention, and ways to turn superior insight into tactical advantage.
