Series of six webinars provides mid-level M&A/corporate counsel with insight into regional trends and best practice in M&A transactions.

From October 19 – 28, A&O will host its inaugural virtual APAC Corporate Academy. Provided by lawyers from across our 13 APAC offices, the Academy will offer our clients insight into regional trends and best practice in M&A transactions and will provide practical takeaways and up to date information on how deals are getting done.

The region regularly hosts local in-person Corporate Academies from offices such as Perth and Hong Kong. This year, given the current situation we are complementing our local Academies by pivoting to a remote platform and bringing together lawyers and clients from across the region to collaborate together, wherever they reside. We anticipate virtually hosting well over 150 attendees from leading international corporations.

Presentations and interactive panel discussions will be led by Allen & Overy partners and senior associates and will cover topics such as trends in private M&A post Covid-19, changes to FDI regimes, distressed M&A, W&I insurance and earn–outs, auction processes and avoiding and resolving disputes. We also look forward to welcoming clients and industry experts to our presentation panels.
