This 2-day, 4-hour online workshop on ‘Basics of M&A and Deal Making Process’ will teach you the basics of the Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) and Deal-Making process – introduction, structuring, raising capital, legal framework, documentation, due diligence and what the role of an M&A lawyer is in all this.
About the Basics of M&A and Deal Making Process Workshop
This workshop is designed to give a practical and legal overview of a deal-making process, with a special focus on a Mergers and Acquisition (M&A) transaction. It aims to provide an understanding of key concepts in M&A, the various forms that an M&A transaction can take and the motives behind it with the help of case studies of Indian companies.
We will walk through the stages involved in an M&A deal, from the meeting of parties to the final execution of the transaction and explore the pros and cons of different structures used in a transaction. We will also examine the regulatory framework to get a flavour of the range of laws that come into play in an acquisition deal.
We will also delve into the due diligence exercise, and learn how to identify potential risks in a transaction and mitigate and allocate such risks to the right parties.
Finally, we will analyse the key documents and template contractual clauses involved in an M&A deal, supplemented with a discussion on legal issues that typically arise between the stakeholders while negotiating and drafting investment agreements.
The workshop will help us appreciate the role and responsibilities of an M&A lawyer and the skillsets required of them. It offers a good starting point for not only those law students who aspire to practice in the M&A space but anyone who is curious to learn the mechanics behind an M&A deal.
