The Israeli Forum of Chief Financial Officers, Tel Aviv, Israel
September 22, 2011

ZAG/S&W, in cooperation with the accounting firm Ernst & Young, participated in a seminar on mergers & acquisitions at the CFO Forum. The CFO Forum has approximately 650 CFOs from Israel’s leading companies.

Harvey E. Bines, from ZAG/S&W's Boston office, discussed M&A transactions through all stages, from initial negotiations and MOUs, through due-diligence, completion of transaction agreements, process issues and closing and post-closing considerations. He highlighted key points in successful transactions, and discuss buyer and seller liability. His overall objective was to inform CFOs on how they might better fulfill their responsibility of reducing contractual and non-contractual risk during and after completion of a transaction, and controlling costs.
