28 Sep 2020 - 1 Oct 2020

8:30 - 10:00am GMT

Adding value through experience

DLA Piper Africa is pleased to invite you to its 2020 Virtual African M&A Academy.

This is the first DLA Piper Africa M&A Academy that will be held virtually and is aimed at junior to mid-level professionals who work in corporate finance, private equity, in-house legal teams and the strategy departments of corporates. The M&A Academy provides an overview of the key stages of the M&A process and will also look at how the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact M&A deals.

Handling more M&A transactions than any other law firm globally (Mergermarket) for each year in the past decade globally, and the last two years across Africa and the Middle East, we are delighted to share our unique insight into what's “market” with you.

We will be running daily sessions via Zoom on Monday 28 September to Thursday 1 October 2020, starting at 8:30am and ending at 10:00am (GMT). Much of the content is broadly standalone, so it is not imperative to attend every session. However, the sessions are intended to follow a logical order through the M&A process.

Please note that we are using the Zoom platform for these sessions. By joining the meeting you are agreeing to use the Zoom platform. Unfortunately we are unable to record the presentations on Zoom.

Please select the sessions you would like to attend when you RSVP and we will circulate log in details accordingly.

We will share a link to register in due course. Otherwise please contact us.

Registration for our Virtual African M&A Academy and access to the Africa M&A Intelligence report is closed to law firms in jurisdictions in which DLA Piper Africa has a presence.
