Lawyers Weekly Masterclass Series: Private business acquisitions: executing a flawless contract

In the looming “new normal”, there are opportunities that abound for the emerging generation of leaders to step up and stand out in a modernised yet still competitive legal landscape. Having a deeper understanding of how to navigate critical tasks and best serve clients in a post-pandemic world will be fundamental for individual and team success.

For the first time ever, the team at Lawyers Weekly is bringing you a masterclass to equip you with the practical tools needed to execute a flawless contract. In this live-streamed masterclass, leading dealmaking lawyers from Herbert Smith Freehills — partners Rebecca Maslen-Stannage and Malika Chandrasegaran — reveal the process and application of exceptional contract construction. So, whether you’re working on the smallest transaction or the biggest blue-chip deal, this masterclass will teach you how to execute a contract like Australia’s top deals lawyers.

Ms Maslen-Stannage and Ms Chandrasegaran will role-play the “buyer” and “seller” roles in a hypothetical private business acquisition, in which they will demonstrate both perspectives of the negotiation table, what to push for and what tactics should be employed in order to secure the best outcome for one’s client.

These leading lawyers will also cover:

  • Transaction structuring
  • Due diligence
  • Regulatory considerations
  • The framework for a sale and purchase agreement
  • Adjustments to capture value, and much more!

This masterclass will be centred around a case study, including “real world” elements from private M&A transactions and will come with a workbook for viewers to work on throughout the presentation.

Questions will be taken throughout the masterclass, with Lawyers Weekly senior writer Jerome Doraisamy acting as moderator for the audience.
