Background

DLA Piper has a wealth of experience in mergers and acquisitions - we regularly execute more M&A transactions than any other law firm (mergermarket) - so we are uniquely placed to offer clients training programmes to enhance their knowledge in this area. 

Our M&A Academy is a one-day seminar held at our offices around the world aimed at junior and mid-level professionals who work in:  

  • M&A transactional teams
  • Corporate finance 
  • In-house counsel 
  • Strategy departments of corporates

The Academy is designed to provide an overview of the key stages of the M&A process, the content of the documentation and the interaction between the lawyer, the financial adviser and the other main players in a transaction. The seminar is interactive and the sessions are delivered by a broad team of experienced DLA Piper senior associates. We are also able to offer bespoke training sessions at client offices. 

We take pride in delivering quality training to clients and are delighted that attendees have found previous seminars useful: 

"Very good content. Great day" 

"I found the day very useful as the M&A process is new to me. The topics went into sufficient detail and comprehensive for me to understand/be able to take away key points" 

"Very informative" 

"I enjoyed the training, it was informative, relevant and very well presented"
