About the event

"The more information we have as lawyers and what we're trying to do from a strategic perspective, the more intuitive our analysis becomes." - Felipe Heiderich

In-house counsel needs to understand the overall strategy because it sets the tone for the entire acquisition. They need to know the deal rationale because some goals can be accomplished through JVs or partnerships.

In this webinar, Felipe Heiderich, Senior Counsel at Moderna, discusses the importance of lawyers in M&A and their role in each aspect of a deal.

Key points

Key Aspects:

  1. Strategy: In-house counsel needs to understand the overall strategy because it sets the tone for the entire acquisition.
  2. ‚ÄćPrioritization: Assuming that lawyers know the strategy, they can heavily influence the transaction‚Äôs prioritization.
  3. ‚ÄćDiligence: For most people, diligence involves finding risks, but for lawyers, it's about mitigating them.
  4. Post-Closing: Once the deal closes, it's not entirely over for lawyers.
