Event description

Description

Austin Talent Forum (ATF) is a group of professionals that is creating a collaborative platform and space for discussing best practices, networking, and sharing resources and information around recruitment, modern HR, employment and immigration law.

Sam Zabaneh (DLA Piper) will moderate this discussion with panel members: Nestor Ho (General Counsel of Silicon Laboratories), Mehron Azarmehr (ALG), Philip Russell (DLA Piper) and Amy Beckstead (Beckstead Terry PLLC). The panel will discuss a topic often left unaddressed by typical HR seminars: what talent professionals need to know regarding mergers and acquisitions.

Discussion topic will regard:

  • Preparation - The actions companies should take to prepare themselves to be an attractive target for acquisition;

  • Deal structure - Asset sale vs. merger vs. stock purchase;

  • Due diligence - Red flags in the corporate, IP, tax, immigration, and employment;

  • Employment & Immigration Issues in M&A - Employment law and related tax considerations;

  • Post-Acquisition - Employee integration must-dos, hold-backs, and indemnification issues following an acquisition.


A special thanks to DLA Piper's NEST Program for hosting the space and beverages, American Bank for sponsoring lunch, and to Nestor, Mehron, Amy, Sam, and Philip for leading the discussion.
