Live Webcast | Merger and Acquisition Contracting Basics


Get up to speed fast with this merger and acquisition (M&A) basics CLE program, which introduces 83 words and phrases M&A lawyers use to negotiate with other lawyers and 35 forms of common provisions.

Learn the difference between a direct merger, a forward triangular merger and a reverse triangular merger. Learn about specific kinds of risk unique to M&A transactions — like completion risk, mis-valuation risk and value-shift risk — and learn tried and true techniques for shifting these risks to the other party. Learn how a merger agreement is typically structured, what issues are covered in each section, and what dozens of words and phrases like "within the collar," "Buyer Power Ratio" and "social issues" mean, and how they factor into negotiating strategies.

We walk through the articles of a typical merger agreement, covering each concept within the context of the provision where it usually arises. Learn exactly what you need to know to negotiate and draft M&A agreements more confidently.
