Mergers and Acquisitions
The Mergers and Acquisitions Section focuses on the role played by lawyers in negotiating and documenting business acquisitions, divestitures, mergers and related transactions. The Section’s principal activities include: discussing and debating issues of current relevance and interest to practitioners in the M&A and investment community; and sponsoring and presenting educational programs on M&A-related topics.
The section strives to be a primary resource for cutting-edge M&A education for the Houston business lawyer and welcomes accountants, investors, bankers and other professionals involved in transactions. The section organizes bi-monthly programs (excluding June and July) that focus on practical M&A-related topics as well as networking events. A council of 10 members including a Chair, Chair-Elect, Secretary and Treasurer meet monthly and provide leadership to the section in planning events.
