Partners Todd Pfister and Jeff Soble will be speaking at the Directors Roundtable event titled "Opportunities & Challenges in Mergers & Acquisitions." The Directors Roundtable is a civic group that organizes the preeminent worldwide programming for Directors and their advisors.

As we head into 2013, mergers and acquisitions continue to be an opportunity in many industries including finance, life sciences, high tech, consumer goods, energy, and manufacturing. It is essential to negotiate and implement deals carefully to maximize success and avoid legal problems. This event will be organized in two panels, with the first focusing on current M&A deals including markets, pricing, finance, structure, and methods of preventing disputes. The second panel will analyze post-transaction disputes including working capital issues, earnouts and payouts, claims related to damages, indemnification, and the dispute resolution process itself. The speakers will conclude with recommendations to boards, C-suite management, and general counsel regarding actions they should take now.

Panel 1: Markets, Pricing, Finance & Structure

  • Robert Metzger, Managing Director, Head of Financial Services and Technology Investment Banking, William Blair & Co. LLC
