PLIs Acquiring or Selling the Privately Held Company 2014 (Chicago)

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 - Wednesday, May 21, 2014

2:00 PM BST - 2:00 PM BST

At this perennial favorite, our experienced faculty will walk you through all of the steps associated with acquiring and selling a privately held company, whether it is a large independent corporation, a division or subsidiary of a large public company, or a smaller venture capital-backed or family-owned entrepreneurial enterprise. 

You will learn about the special issues that apply when a private equity firm is the buyer or owns the target company, and about the techniques and strategies that are essential to successful negotiations.  You will also gain an understanding of the key employee benefits, labor and employment and intellectual property issues that arise and how to address them.  Plus you will learn about special diligence concerns involving international deals, including FCPA, AML, tax and labor issues.

Paul Hastings partner Amit Mehta is a featured speaker on Day Two to discuss "Structuring and Negotiating Earn-Outs."
