Each year, The Deal and its senior editors host an exclusive, by-invitation-only gathering of the most influential members of the deal community for a series of discussions forecasting the outlook for dealmaking in the coming year. Pepper Hamilton has been a proud sponsor of this signature event for years and will continue our support this year as well.
This year, James D. Rosener, a partner in the Commercial Department of Pepper Hamilton, will be speaking on the 1:25-2:15 PM panel entitled "Winning Strategies for Corporate Dealmakers."
After continued instability in the M&A market amid economic and political uncertainty, there continues to be optimism as we head into 2018, and corporate dealmakers continue to explore deals that are more tactical in nature. What trends do corporate dealmakers see in the transactions they’re undertaking, in terms of financial and operating strategy? What are the most promising opportunities and the biggest challenges they anticipate in 2018 and how do they expect, respectively, to exploit and overcome them?
