As the world becomes a smaller place and current events and technology solutions provide scope for M&A to happen on an almost borderless basis, cultural differences can still threaten cross-border M&A transactions and destroy value in what would otherwise be profitable deals.
Join us as we look at the impact of cultural legal differences and how they shape expectations about process and negotiation, and impact on deal terms – all which ultimately determine whether the deal is considered a success or a failure.
In this webinar we will summarise some of the key legal and cultural differences, with a focus on the UK, Germany and Spain, that parties embarking on M&A should be aware of and plan for, in order to run efficient deals and drive value.
Our expert speakers will reflect their experiences from US-European cross-border M&A deals where the divergent expectations of buyers and sellers create behaviours that threaten the success of the deal. They will offer practical tips to overcome these cultural differences to create a stronger working relationship through the deal process and beyond.
