Achieving Success in Cross-Border Deals

At our Doing Business Globally program in Minneapolis, our Track II session will feature business leaders’ top tips for starting cross-border deals and maximizing growth opportunities while minimizing risk. In addition, the session will outline the essentials for successful closings, and discuss best practices for building strong alliances abroad.

“It is increasingly common for businesses to have a global footprint with assets all over the world, so even seemingly domestic deals have cross-border implications, including anti-trust,” said Baker & McKenzie Partner Duffy Lorenz. “Proactively addressing these issues early allows our clients to manage the deal timeline, properly set expectations internally with the business teams and decrease time to closing.”

The track will focus on three strategic challenges for cross-border deals:

  • Managing regulatory risks and understanding key differences in deal terms when initiating a cross-border deal.
  • Navigating the multi-jurisdictional closing process, and exploring deferred closings to increase certainty of the global closing.
  • Handling a spectrum of expansion opportunities during multinational collaborations, from joint ventures to franchising
