4.2 Navigating the Global M&A Minefield

Join this information-packed presentation to hear about the most significant challenges this team has faced while dealing with global equity plans in the context of mergers and acquisitions and the solutions that were reached, as well as the implications to the companies and the affected employees. This session will include examples of deals signed during the COVID-19 crisis. By comparing and contrasting approaches from either side of the Atlantic, and in both the public company and the private company context, this panel will outline for you the key drivers you must consider, including securities laws, shareholder expectations, employment law (including notification and consultation requirements), and corporate and employment tax. Need to know more about the impact M&A might have on your equity plan? This is a session you shouldn’t miss!
