Buying and merging in emerging Europe : M&A trends in old and new Europe The AIJA Baltic Sea Festival will be the first regional meeting for lawyers and in-house counsel of the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea. However, participants are also welcome from all over Europe and the rest of the world. The festival will offer an excellent place for networking in the region along with developing legal skills. The seminar will focus on how legislation and practice is responding to the revived European market of mergers and acquisitions. European M&A is having its best time since 2000 and lawyers are constantly facing new challenges in this fast-growing market. The seminar will offer tools to overcome the major new challenges in light of newly-introduced EU legislation in the field. Tallinn is a perfect venue for the first AIJA Baltic Sea Festival. It is here where old and new meet. Tallinn’s Old Town, belonging to UNESCO’s World Heritage List, is a magnificent blend of medieval streetscapes and modern convenience, with cafes, restaurants, shops and street fairs inside the impressive city walls.
