Merger and Acquisition (M&A) activities in the government contractor sector are on the rise significantly impacting information technology, communications, health, transportation and manufacturing industries. Several macro trends, including contract vehicle consolidation and the shift toward low price-technically acceptable (LPTA) awards, specific to M&A involving government contractors have been driving these flurry of activities. However, this active M&A market also raises a host of unique and complex legal issues that practitioners should consider when advising clients on deals involving the government. Among these issues include federal regulatory requirements, government approvals and novations.
This course offers an overview of the latest trends and updates in the M&A environment for government contractors in 2016. A panel of thought leaders and practitioners will examine the issues unique to merger and acquisitions involving government contractors and the regulatory hurdles businesses may face. The speakers will also discuss best practices on how to address and mitigate unique risks associated in this kind of transaction.
Key topics include:
-Current Trends in Government Contractor M&A
-Government Contracting Rules that Affect M&A Deals
-Representations and Warranties for Government Contracting
-Navigating Novation with Government Customers
