Asian-European M&A and Dispute Resolution Day: Corporate Acquisitions and Resulting Disputes

Date: Sept 14, 2017

Venue: Geneva, Switzerland

This event is jointly organized by the IPBA and the Swiss Arbitration Association.

From the top 10 Swiss M&A transactions in 2016, two (20%) involved successful Chinese bidders (SYNGENTA and GATEGROUP). If approved by all competent government authorities, SYNGENTA will be the largest foreign acquisition by a Chinese company so far (USD 43 billion) and one of the largest M&A transactions worldwide. According to a recent BRINK study, the total M&A deal value in the Asia-Pacific region was over USD 720 billion in 2016. It is expected that M&A activity with Asian companies in Switzerland and Europe will significantly increase in the years to come.

This Conference addresses the specific cultural and legal challenges raised by M&A transactions involving Asian parties, including the risks - bearing in mind that approximately one third of all M&A transactions end up in some form of dispute resolution process.

Corporate executives, M&A specialists, bankers, corporate advisors and lawyers will benefit from attending the Conference.
