On 19 October, we’re delighted to welcome Tim Bratton, General Counsel of the Financial Times, back to Bootlaw to talk about deals with early stage companies from the point of view of the buyer.  Tim will mainly be discussing M&A deals based on his experiences at the FT of acquiring companies over the last 3 or 4 years.

He will look at the issues which came up both during due diligence and during the deal process generally, and what sellers can do to prepare for an exit, to make the process run more smoothly.

At the FT, Tim also works on deals where small companies are selling their products and services and he will share some tips on how you can make sure your company sails through the legal process – or at least does not get bogged down at that stage, when doing commercial deals with big companies. 

Since appearing as a guest speaker at Bootlaw nearly two years ago (inNovember 2009), Tim has embraced social media and tweets at@legalbrat and blogs about life as an in-house lawyer atthelegalbratblawg.


The format of the evening will be, as usual:

6.30pm - Doors open, beer and networking

7pm - Legal bit starts.

8pm - Legal bit ends; more beer, pizza and networking.

9pm - End; head to the pub (White Horse, Exchange Square)
