3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Loeb & Loeb LLP is pleased to announce that partner Michael W. Jahnke will participate in a live webcast hosted by The Knowledge Congress titled "Premerger Notification Compliance and Litigation Update: A 2011 Perspective."
From the program website:
The Hart-Scott-Rodino Act (HSR) was set up to serve as effective guidelines for mergers, tender offers, and other acquisition transactions. Every year, the notifications standards are amended, sometimes significantly. This year the most important changes in decades are expected to take effect. Foreign regulatory authorities have also been setting up their own premerger notification programs that affect US companies with global presence. In light of these recent changes, companies, their antitrust attorneys and consultants must have a complete understanding of the fundamentals and latest legal guideline updates and how those may impact their mergers, tender offers, and other acquisition transactions. In addition, for speedy conclusion of transactions, it is helpful to be able to anticipate and respond to any objections of the regulatory authorities to the transactions, such as those affecting market competitiveness, producer efficiency, consumer prices, and total welfare.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of speaker experts and thought leaders to help walk you through the fundamentals and updates of HSR and foreign compliance requirements, and explain how to anticipate and respond to objections by regulatory authorities in 2011. The speakers will discuss:
- Overview of HSR and foreign premerger filing counterparts affecting US companies
- China, Japan, Australia
- Coverage, Exemption and Transmittal Rules
- Compliance Issues
- Effects of transaction on Competition
- And other up-to-the-minute regulatory updates
- Likely objections and typical responses
- Proposed Changes to the Pre-Merger Notification Form
- Other Up-to-The Minute Regulatory Update
