Cross-Border Transactions: Securities, M&A, and Joint Ventures
In this seminar we will examine M&A, securities and financing transactions from a comparative perspective looking at how cross-border transactions vary from purely domestic transactions. We will also look at joint ventures and related concerns for bribery and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The class will focus on recent transactions such as Instagram/Facebook (domestic); Skype/Microsoft (US/Luxembourg), the D.E. Masterblenders spin-off from Sara Lee and subsequent IPO (US/Netherlands), and various multijurisdictional transactions. We will also look at cultural negotiations including cultural faux pas and peculiarities common across borders.
