Our training is based on our experts’ related international experience and multidisciplinary knowledge. During the training, we will present several areas, which are equally relevant in the whole CEE region (e.g. use of English law) while we will also outline some local, country-specific particularities within the M&A market.
Our training course is recommended for business owners and decision-makers who are planning a sale or an acquisition transaction, as well as for experts who work in the finance, tax and legal fields, especially for players in the investment, banking and capital markets sectors.
