The technology sector continues to be one of the most active areas for the practice of mergers & acquisitions in the U.S. and around the world, ranging from small acquisitions of start-ups to some of the largest, most high-profile and complex transactions each year. This course is intended to provide students with a practical overview of M&A transactions, providing a general introduction to the practice of M&A with a special focus on key issues and complexities associated with transactions in the technology sector. The course includes the study of several case studies of actual transactions, primarily involving Silicon Valley companies, and will also include guest speakers involved in relevant transactions.
Students at all levels of interest and experience are welcome, from students who have little familiarity with the practice of M&A and are interested in learning more, to students who are committed to pursuing a long-term legal or business career in tech M&A.
Note: Students who have completed Mr. Mark Gordon’s course, Mergers and Acquisitions Workshop: Boardroom Strategies and Deal Tactics, previously are not eligible to enroll.
