Deal Lawyers Download Podcast: “ABA Public Target Deal Points Survey”

Our latest Deal Lawyers Download podcast features my interview with Sullivan & Cromwell’s Rita-Anne O’Neill.  Rita serves as co-chair of the ABA’s Acquisition of Public Companies Subcommittee, and recently spearheaded the completion of the ABA’s Public Targets Deal Points Survey, which our podcast focused on.  Topics addressed in this 21-minute podcast include:

– Universe of transactions surveyed and methodology

– Changes in market practice since the 2017 survey

– Impact of tightening regulatory environment on deal terms

– Noteworthy trends in reps & warrants, covenants and deal protections

If you have something you’d like to talk about, please feel free to reach out to me via email at I’m wide open when it comes to topics – an interesting new judicial decision, other legal or market developments, best practices, war stories, tips on handling deal issues, interesting side gigs, or anything else you think might be of interest to the members of our community are all fair game.
