Participants also included general counsel or other internal lawyers from a variety of global multinationals who joined several panel discussions and other sessions. Mr. DeLaMater spoke as the U.S. representative on a panel titled “Key Legal Trends in Global M&A,” focusing on the rise of shareholder activism and the interest in inversions and other acquisitions of U.S. companies by foreign buyers. Mr. Perry joined one of the networking sessions held to facilitate introductions of participants and discussion of issues of mutual interest.
