Events since last August have reshaped the financial landscape and credit and capital markets continue to grapple with continuing uncertainty surrounding the viability of major financial institutions and the increased probability of a wave of high-profile bankruptcies such as that of GM and Chrysler.

In this environment lie unprecedented opportunities for Chinese buyers and strategic investors with the capital and transaction savvy to take advantage of asset values that are widely expected in the next 12 - 18 months to be at levels not seen in more than a generation.

Morrison & Foerster M&A experts will first discuss opportunities for Chinese companies to expand via M&A in the vital U.S. market, including through acquisition of intellectual property and distressed assets, as well as challenges confronting and solutions available to Chinese investors venturing offshore. Then, to help unpack the issues further and stimulate dialogue from a business perspective, a distinguished panel of industry experts from leading corporate acquirers, private equity firms, and investment banks will review opportunities for Chinese companies in specific sectors outside China, along with challenges and solutions on issues such as financing and post-acquisition integration.
