Government Investigations and Enforcement Actions

The fifth webinar presentation in the M&A Litigation Series examines compliance pitfalls associated with M&A transactions. We will discuss how to evaluate antitrust risks of a transaction. We also will address compliance concerns – such as antitrust, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the False Claims Act, and export control issues – that could significantly impact the scope, duration, and magnitude of necessary due diligence. Finally, we will address post-merger considerations that could decrease the severity of a compliance concern if one were to arise after a merger or acquisition has been completed.

On our agenda
  • Pre-transaction – evaluating the transaction itself from an antitrust perspective
  • Pre-closing – managing client conduct and the risk of “gun jumping”
  • Due Diligence – what to look for
  • Post-merger considerations for fostering and perpetuating a “Culture of Compliance” 
  • Managing compliance concerns that are discovered post-closing

On our panel:
  • Jonathan N. Rosen | Practice Vice Chair 
  • Mitchell D. Raup | Practice Vice Chair
  • Noam B. Fischman | Shareholder
