General Information

Welcome to the Mergers and Acquisitions Committee Website. Our M&A subcommittees, taskforces and working groups all conducted meetings and moved forward on projects of interest to members of the group at the recent Spring Meeting of the Section in Montreal. For program materials relating to that meeting, see the Programs Sumcommittee page here.

The latest issue of Deal Points (Spring 2016) is here and includes two articles focused on Canadian M&A considerations along with an article by John Hughes on the meaning of “plainly material” in the context of disclosure-based M&A litigation claims following the Delaware Chancery Court’s recent ruling in In re Trulia.

Ashley Hess, Tatjana Paterno and Tania Djerrahian of our Committee recently gave a highly successful webinar presentation entitled Roadmap of an M&A Transaction as part of the Section’s Business Law Basics series and more than 1,000 people registered for it. The program materials are available to download here and you can listen to the audio here. Look out for Part 2 of the program later in the year!

Members continue to appreciate the contributions of our M&A Jurisprudence Committee of timely articles and memoranda on topics of interest. The M&A Lawyers Library, which contains the cumulative work of that group, can be accessed in the following Section. The Deal Point Studies, available only to members of the Committee, have been updated for transactions occurring in 2014 and are on the Market Trends Subcommittee page here.

For materials relating to the Committee's CLE programs, past issues of Deal Points and some other committee materials see under Committee Resources below. For our other committee and subcommittee materials (including those for upcoming meetings) see the Programs Sumcommittee page here.
