In a couple of days, I’ll be headed north to Montreal, Canada, to join leading aerospace and defense investment bankers and advisors at the 2015 Fall Meeting hosted by the International Law Section of the American Bar Association. I’ll be speaking at “Headaches and Hot Spots: A Review of the Changing World of M&A in the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry.” Over the past year, there have been major industry consolidations, mergers and transformation initiatives in North America, Europe and Asia, trends which will be highlighted during this session. In addition, it will focus on the role counsel plays in shepherding M&A during tough times.

The 2015 Fall Meeting will be held on October 20-24, 2015 in Montreal, Canada at Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth.
