Cross Border Mergers and Acquisitions

The course explores the lawyer's role in structuring, negotiating and implementing cross-border business transactions to create value, manage business risk and promote client interests in a complex legal and regulatory environment.  The course, which will focus on public and private mergers & acquisitions transactions, will be taught by mergers & acquisition partners from the international firm of White & Case LLP.  Other experienced  lawyers from additional practice areas of White & Case LLP will participate in certain of the classes to provide additional insights. The course is designed to fill the gap between academic theory and law firm transactional practice by introducing the participants to basic deal-making techniques and legal and business aspects which should be considered in cross-border M&A transactions. Where possible, case studies from hypothetical and actual cross-border transactions will be utilized during the course.  The course will also examine the current regulatory schemes in a number of jurisdictions that affect foreign direct investments as well as the underlying policy rationales offered for such regulations.
