Why You Should Attend

In 2015, the M&A markets witnessed the return of the mega deal.  Large-cap transactions dominated the M&A marketplace at a level previously unseen.  The announcement in early 2016 of numerous additional $20+ billion deals suggests that this trend is not abating.  At the same time, the pace of deal activity at all size levels continues to be very robust.  In this fast-paced environment, it is critical for dealmakers and their counsel to stay abreast of the latest trends and forecasts. What is driving the continued activity levels, and are those underlying factors sustainable? How will a continued low interest rate environment and volatile equity market affect acquisition strategy and tactics? Will a heightened M&A pace influence the strategies of activists and how should companies be preparing? Join our expert faculty of lawyers, general counsels, regulators and investment bankers as we explore the fascinating state of M&A and the trends you need to be aware of for the year ahead.
