Drafting and Negotiating Merger Agreements
This Master Class exposes participants to the specific considerations involved in structuring a merger transaction. Participants examine key drafting considerations for a merger and how they might differ from an asset or stock purchase context. This Class also introduces merger-specific considerations such as regulatory, statutory, corporate governance, and tax issues by examining actual statutory language and merger agreement provisions.
Upon completion of this Master Class, participants are able to:
- Identify and explain to a client the relevant statutory requirements for consummation of a merger
- Apply diverse legal and regulatory considerations in determining the appropriate structure
- Draft and negotiate basic terms in a Merger Agreement
Participants will be provided with a merger agreement and tasked with revising it based on precedent to reflect a client’s specific concerns, and counseling the client as to regulatory and other actions that need to be taken.
Participants may earn up to 1 CLE credit in the State of California and New York (NY: Areas of Professional Practice; CA: General Credit). Credit is for transitional and non-transitional attorneys in NY. This class is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys. Financial Aid may be available for qualifying participants.
