    The use of Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) to raise capital through Initial Public Offering (IPO) is significantly becoming popular today because of its efficiency and cost-saving benefits. However, consequent to its rapid growth are stricter legal and regulatory probes from the SEC as well as other risk issues including negotiation time constraints and conflicts of interest that could create several threats of litigation.
    Thus, being in the know of recent SPAC-related trends, transactions, and best practices must be prioritized to minimize potential exposure to risks and legal pitfalls.

Speakers will also provide the audience with the best practices in effectively managing every SPAC transaction to prevent risks of securities litigation.

    • Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) – A Legal Primer
    • Emerging Trends and Developments
    o Current Market Structure of SPAC
    o SPACs-related SEC Enforcements
