Cross-border mergers and acquisitions have been on an upward trend in recent years. In the U.S. and globally there is a great deal of change and uncertainty on both the economic and regulatory fronts. There also is concern about controlling technology and competing for natural resources. Some think these factors will continue to fuel M&A activity around the world, including in countries not previously warm to investors from outside their borders. According to a leading monitor of this activity the G20 countries are making good progress in breaking down barriers to international investment.

Such enormous opportunities in such a dynamic space are not without challenges. M & A attorneys at firms and inside corporate legal departments need to understand literally a world’s worth of potential pitfalls.

To assist attorneys and companies LexisNexis is producing a webinar with a panel made up of an experienced global M & A attorneys Michael O’Bryan of Morrison & Foerster LLP and Alan Klein of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, plus Keith Dolliver, Associate General Counsel of Microsoft Corporation.

The webinar – titled “LexisNexis Presents: Cross-Border M & A: Increasing International Holdings & Ensuring Business Well-Being” is scheduled to take place July 27, 2011 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time. For more information on this complimentary webinar, visit the registration page.
