Doing Deals in the Garden State

Business and Taxation, Labor & Employment, Real Estate Track (Central Meeting Room 2/3)

Mergers and acquisitions – buying and selling businesses and business assets – entail a complex blend of business savvy, market knowledge, process familiarity, and substantive legal skills. For lawyers engaged in M&A deals, they must not only be in command of all the corporate law nuances that go into a purchase or merger agreement, but also have familiarity with (or access to other lawyers familiar with) the relevant tax, employment, environmental, and other legal issues that frequently arise in these deals. And while many transactions nationwide are governed by Delaware or New York law, deals involving New Jersey-based owners or businesses will inevitably drag in legal issues in each of these areas that are peculiar to the Garden State. This panel brings together corporate, tax, employment, and environmental attorneys from around the state to share their expertise regarding some of these key NJ legal issues that arise when doing deals.Access Seminar Materials CLE Credits For This Program:
