Merger and Acquisition (M&A) transactions are comprised of elements that can result in tense, often contentious, negotiations and unwanted, often last-minute, surprises (aka “drama”) which can ultimately jeopardize a deal. This webinar will highlight a number of the primary culprits in creating contentious transactions, including legal issues and items ripe for misunderstanding, and offer tips for preemptively dealing with these issues in order to “minimize the drama.”
After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify potential hot buttons in an M&A transaction
- Predict and address appropriate issues early in a transaction, including through any letter of intent/term sheet
- Prioritize due diligence action items
- Evaluate and improve client expectations as well as speed and certainty of closing
