On June 4, 2013, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP will host Indiana's first ever M&A Conference, an opportunity for regional business decision-makers to gather, network, and learn the latest trends and best practices in mergers and acquisitions.
This half-day seminar at the JW Marriott will deliver timely and practical insights on deal execution from national and local M&A professionals and their advisors, including investment bankers, private equity professionals, strategic inquirers, attorneys and accountants.
