    Why You Should Attend

    Last year marked the third busiest in history for M&A activity, behind only 2007 and 2015.  We witnessed the return of the mega-deal, with deals over $5 billion in purchase price seeing a 51% increase over 2017.  But 2019 has ushered in a new set of uncertainties that may stall M&A activity, from the lingering effects of the government shutdown, to anxiety over the Brexit rollout, to chaos in Washington, to possible additional interest rate hikes, to predictions of recession by late 2019.  In this quickly evolving and uncertain environment, it is critical for dealmakers and their counsel to stay abreast of the latest trends and forecasts. What is driving the continued activity levels, and are those underlying factors sustainable? How will regulatory developments and Fed activity affect acquisition financing and equity values? How will these developments influence the strategies of activists and how should companies be preparing? Join our expert faculty of lawyers, general counsels, regulators and investment bankers as we explore the fascinating state of M&A and the trends you need to be aware of for the year ahead.
