The M&A market is increasingly demanding and complex.

 It is imperative that you have a clear understanding of how to structure and negotiate a deal that meets your client’s business goals. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, this two-day, intensive boot camp from Osgoode Professional Development is designed to teach legal professionals and advisors how to run an M&A transaction from its inception through to closing. Using a hypothetical corporate acquisition and blending learning, the program features demonstrations, negotiations and engaging, practical discussions with leading practitioners.

If you’re a legal or business professional involved in transactions, you will benefit from nationally and internationally recognized speakers examining the latest deal trends, structures, pitfalls and opportunities in mergers and acquisitions. You’ll come away from the program with a comprehensive understanding of the key principles and techniques you need to know in order to anticipate and confidently deal with issues that may arise in a negotiated transaction.
