Description

How to "Deal" with Artificial Intelligence, Sponsored by K&L Gates


This program will discuss how artificial intelligence is likely to change deal process and strategy in coming years.


Presenters: Susan Altman and Susan Apel, K&L Gates

Susan Altman navigates businesses through the complexities of today’s technology-enabled commercial transactions in order to help lower costs and improve revenues. Ms. Altman helps clients properly structure contracts in ways that foster long-term, positive commercial relationships, whether through subscription agreements, licensing, strategic alliances, or outsourcing transactions. For example, she recently structured all of the commercial contracts to launch a digital exchange through which institutional investors, banks, broker-dealers, and registered advisors may access model investment portfolios and other investment products and services.

Ms. Altman brings to bear a substantial background as a transactional lawyer serving clients in a broad array of commercial needs. In addition to assisting clients with IT and business process outsourcing activities, Ms. Altman has negotiated commercial contracts across the breadth of global supply chain networks, from manufacturing to distribution and retail, and has supported the commercial launch of numerous cloud-based services. She has also negotiated licenses of intellectual property rights in the software, IoT, FinTech, data analytics, artificial intelligence, medical device, and biotechnology industries. She addresses privacy and data protection in commercial contracts, including many transactions in the financial services and healthcare industries.

The commercial transactions and outsourcing arena demands technically sound, practical advice, informed by awareness of market conditions and best practices. To meet this need, Ms. Altman draws from the knowledge base and assistance of the Commercial Technology and Sourcing practice group, located across four continents, as well as firm resources in areas such as intellectual property, privacy and data protection, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, blockchain, tax, employment, dispute resolution, bankruptcy, antitrust, and FDA.

Ms. Altman is a frequent lecturer on commercial and technology issues affecting companies on the edge of tomorrow.


Susan Apel, a partner at the firm’s Pittsburgh office, is a practical and creative transactional and commercial lawyer. She advises clients with respect to mergers & acquisitions, domestic and international joint ventures, and commercial and corporate governance matters.

Her experience is across a wide array of industries. She has worked for a variety of private and public clients, from start ups to large multinational corporations, but with an emphasis on global middle market enterprises.

She encourages and assists clients to weigh the costs and benefits of legal and commercial risk taking. Her approach is to never lose sight of the business motives and concerns underlying legal matters.
