Kevin Miller was a featured speaker during the session "Getting the Deal Started: Preliminary Agreements and the Role of Financial Advisors" at this conference hosted by the Practising Law Institute (PLI). The following topics were covered during the session:
- Confidentiality agreements
- Emerging issues in working with financial advisors
- Effective auction techniques – from bid instruction to closing
The M&A market has returned to a period of increased activity, characterized by the reemergence of larger transactions. In addition to large deals, the market has also seen a flurry of cross-border “inversion” transactions (which have been slowed by recent regulatory action), as well as spin-offs and a record number of activist campaigns. Continued high levels of M&A litigation is also giving rise to a flurry of decisions and bench rulings that inform practitioners’ views on the latest “M&A deal technology.” These trends and developments are among the points that were discussed at the Doing Deals program.
