PLI Schedules Mergers & Acquisitions Webcast

Thursday, January 1, 2009 - 01:00

PLI has scheduled a seminar titled Mergers & Acquisitions 2009: Trends and Developments for Thursday and Friday, February 22 and 23, as a live webcast of theNew York session. It is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on day one and for 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on day two EST.

Attorneys who counsel corporations, their board members, investment bankers and litigators will particularly be interested in this seminar. The credit crunch we now face has significantly altered the environment for mergers and acquisitions, presenting new challenges for M & A practitioners: it has had a profound impact on the terms of transactions and has led to an influx of foreign buyers and distressed opportunities. The two-day conference format will walk participants through each step in structuring, negotiating and closing a transaction with an emphasis on latest trends.

The faculty of top-deal lawyers and investment bankers includes Corinne Ball of Jones Day; Stuart M. Finkelstein, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP; Bruce R. Kraus, Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP; Carolyn Joy Lee, Jones Day; and Eric Simonson, K&L Gates LLP.
