Event Overview

The AIJA Corporate Acquisition and Joint Ventures Commission is pleased to invite you to a seminar on recent developments in M&A.This two-day seminar and its particularly strong line-up of speakers will offer an unique opportunity for lawyers interested and specialising in M&A to update and improve their expertise and to further develop relationships with colleagues from other firms and countries. The organising committee has put together a varied seminar programme which is intended to explore the subject of M&A in greater depth. The first section of the programme will address recent developments in M&A with a particular focus on the current market situation and include a comparative analysis between the common law and civil law approaches to reducing risk in SPA drafting. The second part of the programme will focus on a rapidly growing and challenging business area, Life Sciences, and examine in what ways M&A is different in this industry. Finally, in the light of the current financial crisis, the programme will investigate the importance of securing the seller’s post closing obligations and the various options that may exist in this regard. The program features speakers from highly respected business law firms, such as Allen & Overy, Reed Smith, Lindahl, Vinge and Wiersholm  as well as prominent speakers from the industry, such as Merck KGaA and investment banks. The social part of the program will include a cocktail reception on Thursday, 28 May for those arriving early. On Friday evening, we will discover the islands and skerries of Stockholm by boat and enjoy dinner in the beautiful Stockholm archipelago. A post seminar dinner will also be arranged on Saturday, 30 May, for those staying until Sunday. A visit to Stockholm offers an opportunity to see one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. Built on fourteen islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved mediaeval city centres, the Swedish capital is superbly positioned, with stunning and extremely varied scenery in every direction.
