Mergers and acquisitions move quickly, and it’s never been more critical to understand the intricacies and trends in M&A deal terms, a collection of important provisions negotiated in M&A transactions. Using eBrevia’s AI-powered contract analytics software, our M&A webinar panel analyzed hundreds of contracts for common M&A deal terms, such as Go Shop vs No Shop, Gold in Back Yard, MAE and Termination Fees.

In this on-demand M&A webinar, our panel discusses the trends they’re seeing in M&A deal terms and how to use this data for contract drafting and internal knowledge management. A deep dive into Material Adverse Event and Termination Fee clauses showcases how historical and current events, such as COVID-19, impact the provisions used in contracts.
