Managing Tricky Deal Terms and Documents

This panel of seasoned attorneys who have represented a number of AEC buyers and sellers in Mergers & Acquisitions and leaders of firms who have been through the M&A wars will discuss the state of earn-outs, non-competes, indemnification obligations and other potentially sticky topics that could upset an otherwise desirable deal, and how best to overcome them.

Lessons Learned from M&A Activity Gone Wrong

While we often talk about how to best steer a course through a merger and acquisition, it is also valuable to talk about and learn from those mergers and acquisitions that haven’t gone so well. This panel will review real-life examples and discuss lessons learned that can help other firms avoid these same pitfalls.
