The seminar is aimed at presenting opportunities and challenges for private equity operators in the current deal market, bringing together expert lawyers, private equity investors and managers of target companies as well as those who are interested in learning more about the current legal and policy issues in the private equity industry. The seminar will, among others, focus on the structure of private equity investments in target corporations operating in various markets (with a special focus on those operating in the retail and real estate market), minority vs. majority stake, corporate governance trends, financing issues, as well as tax issues related to these transactions, in particular in the current distressed times. The speakers and panelists are leading lawyers and operators in their respective fields, representing investors, managers of target companies as well as the world of the legal profession. The seminar will also be an opportunity for discussion and debate between the speakers and the audience. The choice of Rome for this seminar will ensure that you will return home with unforgettable memories. You never get bored in the Eternal City: regardless of how many times you have already visited it, you will always find pages of history and cozy corners to discover!
