“Transnational Mergers and Acquisitions (М&A): International Experience” seminar organized by the Legal Department of Gazprom Neft was held in the end of May in Moscow.
The seminar was devoted to the most topical problems arising during international М&A transactions. During two days the seminar participants exchanged their international experience in conclusion and structuring of М&A transactions and paid attention to relevant accounting, financing and tax aspect. Antitrust legislation and judicial settlement of disputes arising in connection with mergers and acquisitions were considered separately.
In addition to the heads and employees of legal and financial services of Gazprom Neft, the seminar was attended by the heads and employees of legal and financial services of the main subsidiaries of Gazprom Neft, SIBUR Holding, Gazprombank, Slavneft and TNK-BP. Experts from leading Western legal and consulting companies specializing in mergers and acquisitions spoke at the seminar. As the result, the composition of the participants of the conference became unique, having no analogues in Russia yet. The Legal Department of Gazprom Neft plans to hold this event annually.
