Mergers and Acquisitions

Wednesday, January 11, 2017


Please join us as we take an in-depth review of the important legal and insurance implications of a merger or acquisition. Liam Malone of Collins Collins Muir + Stewart and James Murphy of Dealey, Renton & Associates will lead us in a discussion on this increasingly important topic. Over the past few years the M&A activity in the design community has increased dramatically and will most likely continue well into 2017.  If you plan to sell, acquire or transfer the ownership of your design firm in the near future, or simply want to learn more about the issues to consider when a transfer of ownership takes place, we encourage you to attend this informative session.
