An M&A event is an evolutionary milestone in a company’s lifetime. It impacts its human resources, governance, customer relationships, intellectual property, control and management and at times the company’s own existence.
A complete M&A transaction is a product of planning, strategy and foresight of the several players involved. Every step in a deal process is essential and if well calibrated has the potential to lead to a win-win situation for the parties concerned.
The course begins by understanding the M&A process and one’s role as a lawyer in that process. Then the course moves on to the whole structure of M&A transactions and how to go about them? And what are the applicable laws? Mr Mathur also discusses in detail about drafting M&A agreements. The acquisition agreements are broken into their components and examined in the context of how they would function in a deal. By the end of this course, one will be well versed with the entire deal process from start to finish, i.e. from pre-deal stage to post-deal integration and disputes. As a part of the course, Mr Tarun Mathur has also included several supplements of draft agreements and clauses that will be useful.
