About this course

Businesses may undergo mergers and acquisitions (M&As) in order to grow, manage risk, restructure or for a number of other advantages. M&A deals involve complex processes and transactional documents which require lawyers to advise on. It is beneficial for business owners, investors and potential purchasers to understand how M&A transactions work to avoid common pitfalls.

Legal due diligence is very much part of an M&A deal and it is important for purchasers to investigate and verify the target company’s business documents, contracts and assets. A due diligence process may also raise red flags that parties can then discuss and address by changes to the purchase price and in the sale and purchase agreement.

This workshop will cover all the important aspects of a legal due-diligence process, what a merger and acquisition is, terms of the sale and purchase agreement and types of documents typically used in such transactions.

The talk will be delivered in person at WORQ TTDI, a co-working space.
