But even participants who already have experience with M&A transactions can deepen their knowledge in individual areas. The practice lecturers are active in leading law firms and management consultants specialising in M&A and explain the actual, legal and economic basis of the company’s purchase in both theoretical and at the highest level in practical terms. The course focuses on the topics of corporate valuation, due diligence, M & A insurance and company purchase agreement. Attention is also paid to the area of public takeover law. Takeover offers, squeeze out and delisting are presented.
