Webinar / Breakfast in America: Challenges of transatlantic M&A deals

Online

30 September 2021 15:00 - 18:15 CEST


We are pleased invite you to this webinar on the challenges of transatlantic M&A deals as a teaser for the New York seminar that will hopefully take place in 2023 (and which was originally scheduled this year but unfortunately had to be postponed due to travel restrictions). The webinar will consist of two panels and a networking session:

 Panel 1: The US and EU approaches to transactions

In the first panel, we will focus on the structure of a transaction and discuss the differences and similarities of the European and American approaches to the respective steps of the deal – from financing and the NDA through to the Closing.

Panel 2: Client Relationship Management in transatlantic deals

The second panel will address specific challenges in transactions concerning client relationship management and differences in expectations arising from the European and American perspectives. In this panel, attorneys and in-house counsels will share their experiences and discuss best practices.

 

To round up the two panels, there will be the opportunity to participate in the networking session at the end.
