LHoFT and Allen&Overy Webinar – Covid 19: Your Legal Guide in a time of crisis – Episode 1 – 30 minutes

April 3, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


LHoFT and Allen&Overy Webinar – Covid 19: Your Legal Guide in a time of crisis

Episode 1: Managing your governance and contractual obligations with Allen&Overy, featuring Jacques Graas

The COVID 19 virus outbreak has created an unprecedented disruption on a global scale across the entire business community. This disruption raises a number of significant legal challenges for companies regardless of their sector or size.

During this webinar, Jacques will focus on three key areas of concern:

· Corporate governance: how to organize board and shareholder meetings and generally maintain good governance in the times of confinement?

· M&A transactions: what happens with arrangements pending between signing and closing? Can you still go ahead with planned transactions?

· Interactions with commercial counterparties (clients, suppliers,…): can contractual obligations be suspended because of a force majeure event?

Duration: 30 minutes

You would like to ask a question to Jacques, then drop an email at [email protected], prior to the webinar.

Meet our speaker:

Jacques has experience of a wide range of cross-border public and private M&A and corporate transactions across all sectors with a specific focus on financial institutions, asset management, real estate, and private equity. Over the last years, he has advised on some of the major FIG M&A transactions in Luxembourg. Jacques also regularly advises actors from the public sector in Luxembourg. He heads our local FIG/Banking working group and is an active member of our local Real Estate taskforce as well as our FinTech task force, supporting clients from established financial institutions, incumbents and start-ups.

“Jacques Graas is lauded by his clients for his dedication, with one interviewee stating: ‘He has a very hands-on approach, he follows up on all our projects and he is extremely reliable.’ Graas is very active on M&A transactional work, acting on both the seller and the buyer side.”
