The EU's new General Data Protection Regulation imposes substantial obligations on companies to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions occurring within EU member states. The GDPR has broad extraterritorial application, and significant implications for M&A transactions involving EU and U.S. businesses. Prudent buyers and investors need to consider GDPR compliance issues in every step of the transaction - from due diligence through structuring to post-closing integration.

Join these experts:

  • Avi Gesser, Partner, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP
  • Daniel Foerster, Associate, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

Among the topics of this program are:

  • Why GDPR and cybersecurity compliance is becoming an increasingly important part of M&A due diligence
  • Key issues to consider in due diligence
  • Transaction agreement considerations such as reps and warranties, risk allocation and post-closing implications
