So, what's the
Big Deal?

CHSH - Big Deal

On 9 May 2017 it will be that time again: CHSH is offering undergraduates, graduates and PhD students of law or commercial law the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of an M&A transaction. Take part in a workshop and see for yourself how a large-scale M&A transaction is executed. The Big Deal Workshop will culminate in a podium discussion where a distinguished panel will offer career tips for students of law. This year, we will have the honour of welcoming special guest Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Andreas Gerstenmayer, Chairman of AT&S AG.

Following the podium discussion, the successful closing of the M&A transaction simulated during the workshop will be celebrated in style at the Big Deal Clubbing event, organised in cooperation with "Der Standard".

Big Deal Workshop

This year's Big Deal Workshop and the simulated M&A transaction are all about the subject of Cross-Border M&A.  After a short project description by CHSH lawyers, the participants will turn their attention to the basic considerations underlying the M&A project and set a schedule.

Participants will perform a variety of tasks ranging from organising the sales process, drafting a confidentiality agreement, and submitting a takeover offer, to issuing ad hoc publicity, performing due diligence, signing and closing the deal, and implementing post merger integration. Using real life M&A model documents, participants will work together in groups to develop solutions which are then presented under the watchful eye of a supervisor.

Undergraduates, graduates or PhD students of law and commercial law will simulate an M&A transaction alongside experienced CHSH lawyers with a view to shedding light on all aspects of such a deal.

CHSH is offering high potentials the opportunity to put the knowledge they have acquired at university into practice and to take a look behind the scenes of an M&A transaction.

There will be a celebration at the end of the day! All participants of the Big Deal Workshop are invited to attend the Closing Dinner and will be guests at the subsequent podium discussion and the Big Deal Clubbing event to be held in the reception rooms of CHSH.
