  • Webinar

Shearman & Sterling was proud to be a knowledge partner of the Corporate Board Member at its 17th annual Boardroom Summit & Peer Exchange. On September 24, our Global Managing Partner George Casey led a discussion on “The Board’s Role in Improving M&A Deal Outcomes” with Emily Peterson Alva, Board member of Alkermes, Amneal Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Atlanta Life Insurance Company and partners Alan Goudiss and Derrick Lott. The session discussed how directors should provide oversight of M&A transactions and work with management to achieve best deal outcomes. The panel also discussed how directors should approach sensitive transactions where one of the directors or a major shareholder may have a conflict.
