Major international transactions and comparative law: a view from legal practice
Many law firms advise on major international transactions. How do these firms rely on comparative expertise? On Wednesday 30 October, Andrew Marshall and Julie Shacklady from Linklaters will outline how comparative issues crop up in the context of a typical transaction like an acquisition. They'll raise topics like:
- dealing with similar terms to describe different concepts in corporate re-organisations;
- taking security over a cross-border group as part of its financing arrangements; and
- structuring deals to give suitable protection for debtors or creditors if the result is less favourable than the parties had hoped.
This session will run from 5.00 - 6.30 p.m. in the Cube and there'll be drinks available too. Please come along to discuss how transactional lawyers approach comparative issues and advise their clients accordingly.
