High-stakes real estate M&A and restructuring transactions require consummate deal-making skills and a thorough understanding of the underlying business, legal, financial and strategic frameworks. This workshop will explore the relevant skill-sets and underlying frameworks through a combination of class discussions and hands-on exercises. The class will take a multi-disciplinary approach, based on the premise that an effective transactional lawyer must understand the business and financial goals and implications of the deal and, similarly, that an effective business or finance expert must have a solid grasp of the legal and structural underpinnings for the transaction.
**Please note a pre-class session will be held on January 20 from 1:30-4:45pm. Mandatory attendance for the pre-class by law students; highly encouraged to attend in person by business students; and mandatory to review tape recording of the class by business students who do not attend prior to Class**
