With social media continuing to take off, it was inevitable that it would become part of the communications involved in deals. The question then becomes, what does that mean for regulatory purposes? For Rule 425? What should dealmakers be doing to monitor social media activity? And what are permissible ways for deal participants to leverage social media? Join these experts:

  • Mary Korby, Partner, K&L Gates LLP
