Transaction Preparedness: Getting Your Company Ready for Any Type of Deal In Any Economy

Presented By: Ulmer & Barnes Wendling

No matter what type of M&A transaction you’re looking to do, being prepared comes down to three areas — your finances, operations, and people. And when unexpected economic crises appear, you better have a strong process in place. A group of entrepreneurs and experts offers a deep dive into how to make sure you’re checking the right boxes before you go to market with a deal … including the ever-more-critical importance of cybersecurity assessments.
