Davis Polk partner Will Pearce will be among the speakers at the 7th IBA European Corporate and Private M&A Conference. The conference will provide discussion surrounding current legal developments in European private M&A, data protection and a comparison of US, Japanese and European approaches to certain deal terms.
Pearce will be a speaker on the “Belt and suspenders – how to run a dual-track transaction in Europe” panel. Topics discussed will include what key factors practitioners need to consider in such a set-up, in particular whether there are regulatory constraints in certain jurisdictions, what effect the dual-track feature can have on timing, whether it is good practice to use different banks and advisers for each track, and what ramifications the parallel processes normally have on certain aspects, such as disclosure, the organisation of due diligence and the scope of representations and warranties.
The program will be held February 7-8, 2019, in Paris, France.
