M&A Boot Camp training series

Hogan Lovells hosted a multi-part introductory M&A legal training series for law students, junior lawyers, junior bankers, and junior corporate development professionals.

The series was a mix of live interactive webcasts and on-demand modules offering an intensive but basic introduction to the legal aspects of the M&A world. It provides a foundation in M&A terminology, deal structure, key acquisition agreement provisions (focusing primarily on acquisitions of privately held businesses), due diligence, and more.

The course was taught by Hogan Lovells’ market-leading Silicon Valley M&A team of Rick Climan, Keith Flaum, Jane Ross, and Chris Moore. View an overview of the Silicon Valley M&A Partner team.


- Introductory webcast  
- On-demand session 1:  Introduction to M&A

- On-demand session 2:  Structuring the acquisition of a privately held business

- On-demand session 3:  Introduction to the definitive acquisition agreement; negotiating and drafting representations & warranties

- On-demand session 4:  Negotiating and drafting pre-closing covenants and walk rights

- On-demand session 5:  Negotiating and drafting indemnification provisions; negotiation cartoons

- Final webcast

Each on-demand module is 1.5 to 1.75 hours in length. The total estimated time that Boot Camp participants should plan on devoting to the program over the course of the summer, including time spent previewing materials to prepare for each on-demand session and time spent viewing all sessions, is 10 to 12 hours.
