NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2012) - To help dealmakers negotiate leveraged deals, Practical Law Company (PLC), a provider of practical legal know-how to law firms, law departments and law schools, will host a free webinar, "Reverse Break-up Fees and Specific Performance: Analyzing Remedies in Public Deals from 2011," on April 26, 2012 at 12:30PM ET (9:30AM PT). During the 30-minute webinar, attorneys will hear how different sections of a merger agreement address the possibility and consequences of a financing failure, and learn about trends in termination, enforcement and remedy provisions seen in public deals in 2011.

Chris Lafferty, Head of PLC What's Market, and Daniel Rubin, Senior Editor, PLC Corporate & Securities, will walk listeners through the 2012 edition of PLC's study of remedies in leveraged public deals. The study analyzes how dealmakers are using reverse break-up fees, specific performance, damages remedies and financing covenants to tailor an approach to financing risk.

"This review of 2011 public-deal trends will help M&A attorneys structure the best possible approach to allocating risk in debt-financed deals," explained Lafferty. "Attorneys will benefit from practical guidance that they can immediately apply in future negotiations."
