Many in-house lawyers are called upon to advise management on capital raising transactions. Doing this well requires you to understand the underlying business economics of how a business is financed and the legal aspects of different capital structures. This program will cover the basics of financial accounting, the elements of a capital structure depending on the development stage of a business and the financing needs of a company, and the form and terms of different kinds of debt and equity capital. The program will include a hands-on case study and workshops in which experienced legal practitioners and financial specialists apply the business concepts to the development of legal terms and conditions in a typical financing agreement.
This is the second in the series of "MBA" courses designed to provide insight and training on critical legal/business concepts to in-house lawyers, specifically including those that either may not be previously familiar with this subject matter, or are not focused primarily on this area of practice.
WilmerHale Partner Tom White will moderate this event and Partner Justin Ochs will be a panelist.
