M&A Workshop

2016 English M&A Negotiation Workshop

Overview

We are pleased to announce that we will be offering the English M&A negotiation workshop again in 2016. The workshop is designed for Japanese legal professionals who want to:

  • improve their knowledge of English language contracts generally;
  • improve their knowledge of global M&A market practice;
  • improve their English language negotiation skills; and
  • improve their English language legal drafting abilities.

Instructor

Reid Monroe-Sheridan will lead the workshop.

Format

There will be two types of workshop sessions: informational sessions and negotiation sessions.

Each informational session will focus on a specific M&A topic such as representations and warranties, earn-outs, or covenants. The week following each informational session, there will be a negotiation session where the instructor and participants will engage in a series of negotiation and drafting exercises to reinforce and immediately apply the information from the previous session.
