Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC Western Pennsylvania

This one-hour program will address the role of in-house counsel in private M&A transactions and, specifically, their ability to enhance the value of a deal to their client. By virtue of being deeply familiar with their companies and being business partners, as well as lawyers, in-house counsel have the ability to add value at every step of a transaction – be it transaction planning and valuation, due diligence, contract negotiation or post-closing integration. The program will discuss ways for in-house counsel to contribute to the success of an M&A transaction involving a privately held company, emphasizing certain differences between buyer and seller. The presenters will provide practical advice to in-house counsel related to transaction preparation and structuring, due diligence, purchase price negotiation, risk allocation (including R&W insurance) and post-transaction covenants.
