John Washlick, shareholder in the firm's Healthcare section, will be leading a session at the AHLA Health Care Transactions 2022 Conference entitled "'I Want a Divorce' the Dis-Integration of Health Care Mergers and Acquisitions: How to Avoid and Anticipate."

In the wake of the M&A wave, many acquisitions fail to take the necessary steps to integrate their combined operations leading to unwinding the transaction and separating parties. These failures and politically disastrous consequences can be avoided through careful planning during the M&A process, rather than putting them off until after the closing of the transaction. This program will explore in a case-study format:

  •  Reasons for failed consolidations
  • How to plan in advance to avoid such failures
  • Legal recourse when faced with unwinding an acquisition
  • Event unwind triggers to consider when negotiating the M&A transaction and contract exit strategy provisions for consideration
  • Fiduciary responsibilities and duties of the respective boards
