From the smallest deal to the largest, M&A by its nature involves entire businesses and is always complex.

In this session, Cameron Taylor and Ben Jacobs will draw on their combined four decades of experience buying and selling businesses to draw out where they have seen transactions go wrong, what can be learned from those experiences and how to avoid similar issues recurring on your own deals.

Learning outcomes

  • Acquire a better understanding of key risks in M&A transactions.
  • Receive guidance about when and how early preparation can help prevent later issues.
  • Understand the benefits of thorough due diligence, including the appropriate use of vendor due diligence.
  • Receive the benefit of practitioners' perspectives on the relevant transaction documentation.
