As we approach the one-year anniversary of the 2016 United States Presidential Election, we are instituting a series of weekly calls every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. CST discussing the impact of the new administration on various aspects of M&A transactions in the US and abroad.

Over the upcoming weeks, we will be providing updates on critical legal issues arising out of the new administration relating to mergers and acquisitions as well as touching on other relevant and timely topics. We will examine the new administration’s impact on M&A transactions in the following areas:

  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) – November 7
  • Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) – November 14
  • Immigration – November 28
  • Antitrust – December 5
  • Tax – December 12
  • Sanctions – December 19

Please join Mayer Brown partners William Kucera and William Michael for the first 30-minute teleconference on November 7 during which they’ll discuss how the new administration is impacting the analysis of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in the context of M&A transactions.

We hope you will join the discussion. If you are unable to attend the live call, kindly register and we will send you the audio recording following the teleconference.
