A clear understanding of how the parts of a mergers-and-acquisitions contract fit together is essential for anyone involved in M&A transactions. This program presents an overview based on the essential guide to this subject—Ken Adams's groundbreaking book The Structure of M&A Contracts. The speakers are Ken Adams, the leading authority on contract drafting, and Steven Davidoff, the New York Times’s "Deal Professor."

This program explores the connections between representations, obligations, conditions, indemnification provisions, and termination provisions. Topics covered include how to introduce representations, how to word the bringdown condition, the implications of "sandbagging," and many others.

This program would be valuable to junior lawyers seeking a rigorous introduction to the subject and senior lawyers who wish to keep abreast of cutting-edge thinking.

If you register for this program, you will also have access, at no extra charge, a copy of The Structure of M&A Contracts. For more information about this book, go here.
