Last year, the firm of McCarter & English played a critical role in PNC's acquisition of Bridgewater United National Bancorp (UNB), representing UNB in all phases of the transaction. This acquisition will become the focus this month of a CLE seminar titled Handling Corporate Acquisitions: PNC's Acquisition of Bridgewater United National Bancorp: A Case Study of M&As involving Small to Medium Sized Companies.

The program will take place on Thursday, June 17 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Woodbridge Hilton, Iselin, NJ.

This unique program will present a case study of the PNC acquisition, featuring the McCarter & English/UNB team responsible for handling the transaction. They will provide insight on the issues they confronted and discuss many areas involved in "closing the deal."

Attendees will gain insight into M&A of small and medium-sized companies from this case study addressing areas such as banking regulation, corporate governance and contractual matters, securities issues, tax consequences, employment benefits issues, real estate concerns, and due diligence.
