Headaches and Hot Spots: A Review of the Changing World of M&A in the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry

Events

October 20, 2015

Attorney Todd Overman will speak during the session titled "Headaches and Hot Spots: A Review of the Changing World of M&A in the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry" at the 2015 Fall Meeting hosted by the International Law Section of the American Bar Association.

Over the past year, the global market for military products and large-scale projects has seen an overall global decline in revenues and earnings while the commercial aerospace industry has continued to see growth; both see heightened competition for suitors for corporate transactions. In the face of this outlook, there have been major industry consolidations, mergers and transformation initiatives in North America, Europe and Asia, trends which will be highlighted during this session. Economies in certain "hot spots" have seen a sheltering of defense suppliers with greater M&A activity as a result. These hot spots are important for counsel to understand in order to properly advise their internal and external A&DI client. These times produce new "headaches" for in-house counsel and their hired outside advisors. Globally, the role counsel plays in shepherding M&A during tougher times necessitates an understanding of emerging risks and related strategies as well as requires counsel to sharpen their intuition with respect to a myriad of ethical and professional practice issues.

The 2015 Fall Meeting will be held on October 20-24, 2015 in Montreal, Canada at Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth. To learn more, visit the ABA website.
