International Financial Law Review launched the IFLR European M&A Forum in London on September 29, 2015.

The event brought together in-house counsel from top European corporates (public and private) and UK and European-based banks to discuss the legal outlook for deal making across the continent. The Forum discussed all of these topics in an interactive panel format to engage with the audience which offered the opportunity for everyone to get involved on a range of subjects. In-house counsel and banking professionals attended the event for free. The Forum offered seven CPD – and seven CLE (NY & CA) – points, and delegates had the opportunity to network with senior legal professionals over breakfast, lunch and two coffee breaks.

Who was there:

  • General counsel
  • Heads of legal
  • Bankers’ counsel
  • Deal makers
  • Chief legal officers
  • Private practice lawyers

Delegates benefited from expert advice in just one day out of the office and discussed the following topics:

  • The benefits of locked boxes and completion accounts
  • How to obtain higher leverage through unitranches
  • Changes to transfer schemes and why they are still beneficial
  • How to use legal techniques to narrow the valuation gap
  • Robust defence strategies against shareholder activism
  • Trends and sectors for transatlantic deal flows
  • Techniques for managing merger control
  • How private equity financing will change the market
