ABA In the Know Webinar: Director Roles in M&A Transactions

October 10, 2019 in Webinar - Corporate Counseling
Patricia O. Vella

Morris Nichols partner Patricia Vella will serve as a panelist in the webinar “Director Roles in M&A Transactions” hosted by the American Bar Association on October 10, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EST.

An experienced panel will focus on ten important areas where board oversight is crucial and case law demonstrates a need for attention by advisors and board members. This program will review key process tips to encourage best practices in board oversight of M&A deals, and provide practical advice on the common issues faced by buyer boards and target boards and their advisors in both public and private company transactions.

Presented by the ABA Business Law Section, this “In the Know” session is free for BLS members. CLE opportunities are available. 

Tricia and the webinar panelists co-edited an ABA Handbook on this topic that gives directors, management, and legal and financial advisors a framework for providing effective oversight of merger and acquisition deals. The Handbook is a product of the Joint Task Force on Governance Issues Arising in Business Combination Transactions of the ABA Business Law Section’s Mergers and Acquisitions and Corporate Governance Committees. Tricia served as a co-chair of the Task Force since 2011.
