[2022-10-31] M&A Seminar: Insights in the state of play of the Dutch and Japanese M&A markets – A financial, legal and financing perspective

On Monday 31 October we organized an M&A Seminar with Allen & Overy LLP and Nomura at the office of Allen & Overy in Amsterdam where we focused on the changes and developments in the M&A markets. We thank all those who attended the event and of course special thanks goes to Allen & Overy and Nomura for their interesting presentations!


After a record year for M&A in 2021, there is now more turbulence in the M&A markets. Successfully navigating the path to signing and completion of deals is still possible, but has become more complex.

Allen & Overy LLP, Nomura and Dujat are delighted to invite you to their M&A seminar on Monday 31 October 2022.

During this interactive seminar we will give you insight in the state of play of the Dutch and Japanese M&A markets. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, we look at it from both the financial, legal and financing perspective.

This seminar is open to everyone with an interest in M&A, regardless of their professional background or whether they have M&A experience.
