CLEBC is proud to present the 10th annual offering of Legal Strategies in Private Mergers and Acquisitions. This year’s agenda will be focused on how to help clients effectively sell their businesses. Small or closely held businesses often need strategic advice and guidance in addition to legal advice from their counsel. These kinds of businesses have unique considerations and characteristics that make advising them different than your ordinary practice. Join us to hear experienced and senior practitioners present the kind of high level practical and real world discussion on how to deal with key issues that arise for vendors in M & A transactions.
At this year’s program, you will learn strategies for... 
  • helping clients identify their buyers and what they want
  • planning a tax effective deal
  • negotiating acceptable indemnification and liability provisions
  • managing the cast of characters involved to on-time completion
  • identifying and negotiating key employment and labour issues
  • moving to a letter of intent

Praise from past participants...

"First rate people doing fine presentations." (2014)

"Great overview of issues that can arise in M&A of private companies; detailed enough to be useful but not so detailed as to not be useful to non-specialists." (2013)

"Good scope and just enough depth for me. As an in-house counsel, I am able to retain M&A specialists for our transactions, but this gave me an excellent overview of pertinent issues and 'sticking points'." (2013)

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6 hours (a minimum of 1 hour will involve professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
