More Mock Negotiation... Plus a Salute to the Strine Era in M&A (Nov 2019)
The panelists will engage in an illustrative negotiation to shed light on one of the most contentious provisions in the definitive agreement for the acquisition of a privately held company – the closing condition addressing the buyer’s ability to walk away from an announced deal because of inaccurate representations by the seller. They will devote the remainder of their session to a discussion of the lessons M&A practitioners have learned from retiring Delaware Chief Justice Leo Strine over the course of his two decades as a Delaware judge.
