IEL to Launch New M&A Conference

The IEL will be presenting its first M&A/A&D conference in Houston in May, 2014.  Responding to considerable demand for a free-standing conference on mergers and acquisitions and asset sales and purchases, the IEL's Programs Committee agreed to launch a new conference next year. Conference co-chairs will be Harry Sullivan of ConocoPhillips and Debra Villarreal of Thompson & Knight, and their preparation will begin with the hosting of a planning meeting for the conference in Houston’s Downtown Club at Houston Center on Friday, August 9th at 12 Noon.  The planning meeting, which will be held over lunch, is an ideal opportunity for IEL members involved in this area of practice to influence the selection of topics and speakers for the conference.  There is no charge to attend the planning session, but please pre-register on this Survey Monkey response form.
