ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Data is a valuable resource and companies are now capable of collecting and analysing more data than ever before. As companies unlock the potential of data, it affects every aspect of our lives and mergers and acquisitions are no exception. When structuring transactions, lawyers must now consider how to determine the value of data and protect that value during the life of an investment. Technology is evolving at a record pace and deal teams must often balance various compliance regimes and legal frameworks. Data also brings unique risks such as breaches of personal information and unclear ownership of intellectual property.
Lawyers from Clifford Chance who have been involved in cutting edge transactions and disputes regarding data will share their experiences on this topic. They will provide illustrations from practice and the audience will be invited to ask questions and share their perspectives on the topics discussed.
