On 7 July 2016 LCN Legal will present a seminar on the legal issues relating to mergers in group reorganisations. In addition to other methods of business integration, the seminar will include a discussion of Cross Border Mergers (CBMs) under EC Directive 2005/56/EC – a procedure which is often considered, but far less frequently used in practice.
Who the seminar is for
The seminar is for in-house finance/treasury, tax, legal, and company secretarial professionals within large corporates, financial institutions and SMEs. The seminar is also open to tax advisers in private practice who are involved in the structuring and implementation of group reorganisations.
What attendees can expect to receive
The seminar will provide attendees with an overview of legal and practical issues relating to mergers in group reorganisations. This will include:
- “true” Cross Border Mergers (CBMs) under EC Directive 2005/56/EC: how they work, and key legal feasibility issues
- mergers by way of asset transfer: key legal issues under English law
- Pros and cons of “true” mergers vs asset transfers
The seminar will include an open discussion of corporate restructuring issues, and the presenters will be available immediately after the seminar to answer whatever legal questions delegates may wish to raise.
