M&A seminar: EU legal & regulatory aspects

Some time ago I wrote about issues often overlooked in medical devices M&A transactions. Because of the reactions to it I decided to organise a seminar at my law firm’s Amsterdam office about it on Wednesday 13 April that should provide a good insights in the subject. With speakers from notified body BSi (Jan van Lochum, vice president Healthcare), from DRS regulatory consultants (Hans van Dulmen) and of course myself you will get a good insight in the regulatory and legal aspects of mergers and acquisitions in the medical devices company. The seminar is free and will be made available in real time as webinar, so if you cannot travel you can participate if you have a computer with internet connection and a telephone. Participation is free. I hope to welcome many of my readers!

Here is the invitation, just for good measure (you may need to click the CT screen to start the animation and see the invite):
