Cross-Border Deals: A U.S. Perspective

23 January 2012

This April intensive highlights the distinctive concepts and practices of U.S. securities and corporate laws in cross-border transactions and focuses on resolving the challenges U.S. issues can pose to transactions originating in Australia (and other countries).

The purpose of Cross-Border Deals: A U.S. Perspective is to assist Australian and other non-U.S. lawyers in (a) identifying potential U.S. issues on non-U.S. deals and (b) being creative in solving the challenges that arise in international securities transactions.

The unit will also enable practitioners to to critically question and even push back on U.S. lawyers who insist that a particular issue be handled a certain way.

Mr. Ronald C. Barusch, retired Mergers and Acquisitions Partner, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, and author of the "Dealpolitik" column for the Wall Street Journal will teach the unit.

Mr. Barusch was with Skadden Arps for 32 years in four different offices, including being the Office Leader of the Sydney Office for three years.

His practice areas included mergers & acquisitions, corporate finance and corporate governance.

Please note:

Students undertaking this unit must have a good working knowledge of the Australian Corporations Act and the rules and practices applicable to securities offerings and takeovers or the equivalent in their home jurisdiction.
