Anti-Corruption Due Diligence for Mergers/Acquisitions will take place on the below dates:

New Date: 11th June 2014, London

Course Overview

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) is all about creating synergies and value from deals, which is not an easy task. Given the unique characteristics of each transaction, there are many practical and legal issues that must be resolved in order to achieve the desired results.

Though acquirers may or may not inherit the criminal liability of their targets depending on the local jurisdiction, conducting anti-corruption due diligence for all merger & acquisition (M&A) transactions has become necessary to limit corporate criminal liability and the personal liability of company directors.

This course will enable participants to understand the legal risks associated with corruption problems specifically within the context of M&A and to identify the measures to be taken with regard to due diligence.

An interactive and practical case study of an acquisition will enable participants to put the due diligence measures they have studied into practice.
