BLOOMBERG BNA WEBINAR EVENT: Avoiding Ethical Bumps in M&A and Lending Transactions
Wednesday, March 6, 2013
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
This program will focus on when privilege attaches in the “life” of a typical merger-and-acquisition and leveraged transaction, from preparation to negation to closing and the transition afterward. The panelists will discuss conflict of interest, due diligence, and communication issues relating to a hypothetical scenario that considers practical issues and sensitive dynamics involving boards of directors, officers, lenders, and creditor committees.
The faculty will also discuss ethical issues relating to executive compensation and employee benefit plans. Litigation risks will be addressed as they help to define the precautions that companies, their lenders, and potential buyers should be considering.
