Dear members, dear colleagues,


The UIA is pleased to invite you to attend its6th Business Law Forum - New Restructuring of Businesses: Legal and Compliance Aspectsto be held in Lisbon on June 21 and 22, 2014.


Only 15 days left to benefit from our early bird rate. Sign up now, before you become the angry bird!


Since the onset of the banking crisis, deal-making has become difficult and volumes have fallen away. The restructuring of the different sectors of the corporate landscape, as well as a combination of liquidity pressures, a tough economic environment and ongoing regulatory changes, continue to have a considerable impact on business models and are likely to be key factors affecting M&A deals.


Putting together M&A restructuring deals, such as split-ups, spin-offs and carve-outs, in the context of their tax implications and compliance requirements, before, during and after completion of the deal, is one of those challenges that every experienced advisor in the legal, accounting and financing industry wants to take and likes to face.


For this next Business Forum, members of the Banking, Corporate, M&A and Tax Commissions of the UIA will discuss such matters together with representatives of the financial sector. One of the highlights of the seminar will be a particular focus on emerging market transactions, insolvency practitioners from Asia, Africa and Latin America.
